FG declares Monday, Tuesday as public holiday to mark Workers Day, Sallah celebrations

The Federal Government has declared Monday, 2nd and Tuesday, 3rd May, 2022, as public holidays to mark this year’s Workers Day and Eid-il-Fitr (Sallah) celebrations.

The Minister of Interior, Ra’uf Aregbesola, made the declaration yesterday, on behalf of the Federal Government.

While congratulating workers across the country on this year’s celebration, Aregbesola 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, therefore, enjoined workers to imbibe the culture of productivity and urged workers to raise the bar of their trade, in line with the Buhari-led administration’s drive to rev-up the vehicle of governance and make all the people of Nigeria derive maximum benefit from the nation.

The Minister also congratulated all the Muslim faithful for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.

Aregbesola called 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 (PBUH).

The Minister expressed confidence that the security challenges in some parts of the country will soon be a thing of the past, noting that the Government is putting determined efforts and all necessary measures in place for Nigerians to enjoy unfettered peace all round.

Aregbesola assured Nigerians that the administration of President Buhari is fully committed to the security of life and property of every citizen and foreigners alike.

He wished all Muslims a happy Sallah celebration and prayed that the peace, blessings and favours of Allah be with all the citizens.
