FG Declares Friday and Monday As Public Holiday
The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 2, and Monday, April 5, as public holidays to mark the 2021 Easter celebrations.
The Federal Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration as he urged Christians to emulate the attributes of forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience, which were demonstrated by Jesus Christ and also appealed to them to use the occasion of this year’s Easter Celebration to pray for the peace, unity, and progress of the country.
Aregbesola assured that the Nigerian Government will leave no stone unturned in dealing decisively with the spate of kidnapping, armed banditry and other crimes and criminality being perpetrated by enemies of the country in parts of Nigeria.
His words; “Security is everybody’s business, I therefore encourage all Nigerians and foreigners resident in Nigeria, to display high level of patriotism at this critical time in the history of our country, to support the efforts of all security agencies in ensuring peace and security of lives and property of the citizenry,”.
