THE National Space Research and Development Agency
(NASRDA) has released moon conditions for major cities
in Nigeria for Thursday, July 16, 2015, to signal the Eid-
el-Fitri celebrations and end of Ramadan.

According to a statement by the Head of Media and
Corporate Communications of the agency, Dr Felix Ale,
the new moon is expected to be seen across the nation
. He said that in Abuja, the appearance of first crescent
would be from 6. 06 p.m to 6.36p.m, Sunrise to
6.19a.m, sunset to 6.25p.m, adding that in Maiduguri,
appearance of first crescent would be from 5.4 p.m to

In Lagos, the appearance of first crescent would be
observed from 6.24p.m to 6:54p.m, sunrise to 6:36a.m

With the analysis of the moon conditions from the
Space Agency, Dr Felix Ale said Muslim faithful across
the nation should watch out for the moon and await
pronouncement from the chairman, Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, in line with the Islamic tradition for the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations.

Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has
deployed over 20,000 personnel including special
marshals along designated routes as part of measures
to ensure sanity on the nation’s highways, during this
year’s Eid-el-Fitri Sallah celebration from July 15 to 20,
2015.

Also deployed are the 300 patrol vehicles, 50
ambulances, 75 motor bikes, and 10 tow trucks in line
with the Corps 2015 strategic goals towards improving
road safety.

A statement by the Corps Public Education Officer, Mr
Etuk Imoh, indicated that this year’s nationwide
exercise was in conformity with the Corps’ 2015
strategic goals of reducing road crashes by 20 per cent
and fatality by 30 per cent.
