The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the Federal Government, has declared Friday 15th and Monday 18th April 2022, which are Good Friday and Easter Monday, to be Public Holidays, to mark the 2022 Easter celebration.
Aregbesola, while speaking on Tuesday in Abuja, 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.
Aregbesola, therefore, called on Christians and all Nigerians alike to use the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration to pray for an end to all security challenges bedeviling every part of the country.
The minister assured that 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 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 to the 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 President Muhammadu Buhari ”to make life more meaningful for all”.
