The Federal Government has declared Friday the 2nd and Monday the 5th of April 2021, as public holidays to mark this year’s Easter Celebration.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government.

Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the attributes of forbearance, forgiveness, kindness, humility, love, peace and patience, which were demonstrated by Jesus Christ.

He also 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.

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.
