Ramadan: Jigawa Government Reduces Working Hours

Jigawa Governor, Badaru Abubakar

Jigawa state Government has reduced working hours in the state as Muslims observe the Ramadan fast.

This was revealed in a circular from the office or the state Head of Service, signed by the Permanent Secretary (Establishments), Nuhu Haruna on Thursday.

Civil Servants will from Mondays-Thursdays work between the hours of 9:00a.m- 3:00 pm.

While on Fridays, working hours have been reduced to 9:00a.m-1:00 pm.

The government then urged Muslims to make proper use of the Ramadan period to pray for Jigawa's peace and prosperity, and that of the country in general.

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar is when Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, and having marital intimacy from dawn to dusk.

This goes on for 29 or 30 days, depending on the length of the lunar month.

During this period, Muslims have always been encouraged to pray more and increase acts of charity.

They are also expected to refrain from uttering foul and curse words while seeking constant repentance from Allah.
