Govt declares April 7, 10 Easter holidays

Rauf Aregbesola

The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 7 and Monday, April 10 as public holidays to mark Good Friday and Easter Monday.

Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola announced the public holidays on behalf of the government yesterday in Abuja.

Aregbesola urged Christians to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love and patience during the celebrations.

He said these were the attributes of Jesus Christ which he demonstrated throughout his life.

In a statement by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, the minister urged Christians to use the occasion to pray for Nigeria to overcome its security challenges.

He noted that security is everybody’s concern and business, adding: “I, therefore, urge Nigerians and foreigners resident in our country to display a high sense of citizenships and public spiritedness by supporting the efforts of all security agencies in bringing peace and security of lives and property of the citizenry.”
