The Kano State Government has approved the adjustment of the 2021/2022 school calendar for both public and private primary and secondary schools operating in the state because of the forthcoming Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the month of fasting. It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon.

According to the Deputy Director of Information for Kano State Ministry of Education, Aliyu Yusuf stated that the change was made in response to parents’ and other stakeholders’ demands that the government allows their children to fast completely at home during the summer vacation, given the month’s significance.
