The Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has declared Monday, December 31, as a public holiday in the state, to enable residents to offer a special prayer for the repose of the soul of former President, Shehu Shagari.

This was contained in a statement by Tambuwal’s Director General, Media, and Public Affairs, Malam Abubakar Shekara, and issued to newsmen on Saturday in Sokoto.
