To commemorate Easter celebrations the Federal Government has declared Friday and Monday as holidays.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the announcement on behalf of the federal government on Tuesday.

The Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore in a press statement issued on his behalf, quoted Aregbesola to have 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 also 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 bedevilling every part of the country.

The Minister gave the assurance 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 of lives and property of the citizenry,” Belgore said.
