The Federal Government has declared Monday, May 2nd and Tuesday, May 3rd as public holidays to mark the Workers Day and Eld-el-Fitr celebrations.
A statement signed by the Permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Interior, Dr Shuaib Belgore, says the declaration was made on behalf of the Federal Government by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on Thursday, April 28, 2022.
Aregbesola congratulated workers across the country on this year’s celebration as well as commended them for their hard work, diligence, and sacrifice, noting that their efforts are largely responsible for the greatness of the country and the respect Nigeria now commands in the comity of nations.
The Minister also congratulates all Muslims for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
Ogbeni Aregbesola calls on all Muslims to imbibe and practice the virtues of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).
“The self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, in order to be a better person and true worshipper”, the minister advised all Muslims.”
