FG declares April Friday, Monday public holidays to mark Easter

THE Federal Government has declared Friday, April 2 and Monday April 5, as public holidays to mark this year’s Easter celebration.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government today, in a statement signed by the Director (Press & Public Relations) of the Ministry of Interior, Mohammed Manga.

In the statement, Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the attributes of forbearance, forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience, which were demonstrated by Jesus Christ.

The minister urged them to use the occasion to pray for the peace, unity, and progress of the country.

He assured Nigerians that the federal government is committed to putting an end to kidnapping, armed banditry and other crimes and criminality which he attributed to the handiworks of the enemies of Nigeria.

“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,” he said.

Aregebsola urged Nigerians to give the Buhari administration the support needed to make life more meaningful for all.
