Mga higala! President Rodrigo Duterte has declared June 5 as a non-working holiday for the observance of Eid’l Fitr or the culmination of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting of our Muslim brothers and sisters.
The proclamation for this was signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea yesterday, May 28, by the authority of the President, since he is currently in Japan to attend Nikkei’s International Conference on the Future of Asia.
President Duterte expressed that it was important to declare June 5 as a holiday, in order “to bring the religious and cultural significance of the Eid’l Fitr to the fore of national consciousness.”
