Easter: FG declares March 29, April 1 as public holidays

The federal government has declared Friday, March 29 and Monday, April 1, as public holidays to mark Good Friday and Easter Monday, respectively.


Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, minister of interior, announced the public holidays in a statement issued on Wednesday by Aishetu Ndayako, permanent secretary of the ministry.


The minister urged Nigerians to emulate the sacrifice and love displayed by Jesus Christ in dying for the redemption of man.


“Easter, beyond religious significance, promotes values of love, forgiveness, and compassion, which are essential for social cohesion and harmony,” the statement reads.


 “While wishing Christians at home and abroad a happy and blissful Easter celebration, the Minister also called on Nigerians to join hands with President Tinubu-led Administration in its determination to bring sustainable development and usher in prosperity for all.”


The minister further urged Nigerians to show acts of charity and generosity to help alleviate the material conditions of the less privileged among them.


Tunji-Ojo added that this was in tandem with President Bola Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda.
