The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 2 and Monday, April 5, 2021 public holidays, to mark this year’s Easter Celebration.
Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this in a statement issued and signed by the Director, Press & Public Relations in the ministry Mohammed Manga, on Tuesday.
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 Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for the peace, unity, and progress of the country.
He assured that no stone will be left unturned as the FG deals with kidnapping, banditry, crimes and criminality which he said is being perpetrated by 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.
He advised Nigerians to join hands with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in its determination to make life more meaningful for all.
