The Federal Government has declared Friday 2nd and Monday 5th of April 2021, as Public Holidays, to mark this year’s Easter Celebration.
In a statement signed by the Director Press and Public Relations of the Ministry Of Interior, Mohammed Manga, Minister Rauf Aregbesola, who made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government, urged Christians to emulate the attributes of forbearance, forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience, demonstrated by Our Lord Jesus Christ.
He called on Christians to use the occasion of this year’s Easter Celebration, to pray for the Peace, Unity, and Progress of the country.
Aregbesola also assured that the Federal Government will leave no stone unturned, in dealing decisively with the spate of kidnapping, armed banditry and other crimes and criminality being perpetrated by the enemies of the country.
He says; “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,”
