FG Declares Friday, Monday As Easter Holiday (Updated: 1 month ago)


The Federal Government has announced Friday and Monday as holidays.

FG announced this on Tuesday.

It said the holidays will be in commemoration of Easter celebrations.

Easter is a Christian festival and cultural holiday celebrated annually to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

This year’s Easter day comes up on Sunday, April 17th, and Monday, April 18th.

In this regard, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, announced today on behalf of the federal government that Easter Holiday begins on Friday.

In a statement, Dr Shuaib Belgore, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, issued on his behalf, Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the attributes of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace, and patience, which were the attributes and practices of Jesus Christ, as exemplified by his ministry on earth.

The Minister further encouraged Christians and all Nigerians alike to use the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration to pray for an end to all security challenges bedevilling every part of the country.

“The federal government will 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.

 “Security is everybody’s business. I, therefore, urge e Nigerians and foreigners resident in our country to display a high sense of citizenship and public spiritedness at this critical time in the history of our country, by supporting the efforts of all security agencies in bringing peace and security of lives and property of the citizenry,” he said.
