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.
