The Federal Government has declared Friday 2nd and Monday 5th of April 2021 public holiday to mark this year’s Easter celebration.
The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the Federal Government announced this in a statement signed by the Director (Press & Public Relations) of the Ministry of Interior, Mohammed Manga.
Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the attributes of forbearance, forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience, which were demonstrated by Jesus Christ.
He assured that no stone will be left unturned as the Federal Government deals with kidnapping, armed banditry and other crimes and criminality which he says is 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.
