The Federal Government has declared Friday, April 7 and Monday 10 public holidays for the 2023 Easter celebrations.

A statement today, April 5, by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Dr. Shuaib Belgore said that the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government.

He said that Aregbesola advised Christian faithful to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace and patience, which were attributes and practices of Jesus Christ as exemplified by His ministry on earth.

He also called on Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for an end to the security challenges in some parts of the country, adding that security was everybody’s business.

He enjoined them to love their neighbours through acts of kindness and generosity of spirit, with the well to do sharing their substance with the less privileged around them.

He urged Nigerians and foreigners resident in the country to display high sense of citizenship and public spiritedness by supporting the efforts of the security agencies.
