Easter: FG Declares Friday, Monday Public Holidays


The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 15 and Monday, April 18, 2022, as public holidays to mark the celebration of Easter.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, announced this in a statement issued by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore, on Tuesday.

Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the attributes of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace and patience, as exemplified by Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth.

He also asked them to pray for an end to the insecurity bedevilling the country, assuring that the Federal Government would leave no stone unturned to ensure that the recent attacks by undesirable elements on the highways, airport and the railway are timely brought to an end.

“While wishing Christians at home and in the Diaspora a happy and peaceful Easter celebration, we also call on Nigerians to join hands with the President, Major General, Muhammadu Buhari (retd) led regime in its determination to bring sustainable development and usher in prosperity for all,” the statement added.

The minister assured Nigerians that the nation is inexorably on the path to greatness, despite the present challenges confronting her.
