The sultan’s call was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman, Advisory Committee on Religious Affairs of the Sokoto Sultanate Council Prof. Sambo Wali.

“This is to inform you that Monday, July 8 is the 29th day of Sha’aban 1434 AH and shall be the day to start looking for the new moon of Ramadan,” the statement said.

He added that upon sighting of the new moon, Muslims are to report such to the nearest district or village head for onward communication to the sultan.
