Barka da Sallah

The Muslim festival, Eid el-Kabir, is certain to be celebrated on October 3 or 4. The moon was sighted on September 24.

Sultan of Sokoto Muhammad Abubakar Saad III, who is the leader of Muslims in Nigeria, will say the date for the festival. He has yet to do so, however.

The Muslim faithful will exchange gifts of ram meat and more. Nigeria’s political leaders – president, governors and leaders of the legislature – will be falling over themselves to send congratulatory messages to Muslims.
