FG Declares December 27, 28, January 3 As Public Holidays

The Federal Government has declared Monday 27th, Tuesday 28th December 2021 and Monday, 3rd January 2022, as public holidays.

This is to mark this year’s Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year Day celebrations.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, confirmed this in a statement issued on Wednesday by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore.

Aregbesola, who felicitated with Christians and all Nigerians at home and in the diaspora, called on all citizens to emulate the “life of Jesus Christ in His practice and teachings on humility”.

“We must emulate the life of Jesus Christ in His practice and teachings on humility, service, compassion, patience, peace and righteousness, that His birth signifies.

“This will be the best way to portray Christ and celebrate his birth,” he noted.

According to Aregbesola, peace and security are the two critical conditions needed for economic development and prosperity in the country.

The Minster urged Christians and Nigerians to make the best use of this festive period to seek the help of God towards the current realities of the country.
