It added that the Ramadan fast would reach 30 this year as against preparations earlier made by Muslim faithful to celebrate Eid on Saturday.
“There was no positive sighting report of the Shawwal crescent in Nigeria, tomorrow is 30th Ramadan. An official statement from the Sultanate will be released shortly”, the tweet read
Meanwhile, a statement earlier released by Saudi authorities noted that, “Saturday will be the last day of the sacred holy month of Ramadan and Eid-el-Fitr will take place on Sunday.”
