The Federal Government has declared public holidays on Friday 2nd and Monday 5th of April, 2021.

The public holiday declaration is to mark the celebration of Easter.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola made the declaration on Tuesday while urging Christians to emulate the attributes of forbearance, forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.

He called on them to use the commemoration  of this year’s Easter Celebration to pray for the Peace, Unity, and Progress of our country.

Aregbesola in a statement signed by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Mohammed Manga, assured that the government would leave no stone unturned in dealing decisively with the spate of kidnapping, armed banditry and other crimes and criminality 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.

While wishing Christians both at home and abroad a happy and peaceful Easter Celebration, Aregbesola called on Nigerians to join hands with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Administration in its determination to make life more meaningful for all.
