FG declares Monday as a public holiday
FG declares Monday as a public holiday in light of Democracy Day celebrations. The news was made public by the Minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola on Thursday the 10th of June, 2021.
In a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, he encouraged all citizens to support the present administration in its efforts to ensure the country is united and prosperous.
He also stated that any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all.
“As we mark another Democracy Day in the history of our dear country, let us reflect on the efforts of our founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria remains one United and Indivisible Entity. No development can take place in an acrimonious environment,” he said.
“With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honour each other and live together in peace and prosperity.”
Furthermore, the minister noted that as a country, Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if all citizens love his or her neighbour and embrace the spirit of brotherly love.
Aregbesola assured that with the dedicated efforts put in place by President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to secure the lives and property of Nigerians and provide stability in the economy, the nation will continue to get better.
He expressed a lot of enthusiasm and hope for the country while speaking. The minister believes Nigeria can become great again if only we all work together and support the present administration.
“There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,” he stated.
