The federal government on Tuesday declared Friday, (Good Friday) April 15, and Monday, (Easter Monday) April 18, 2022, as work-free days to mark the Easter celebrations.

This disclosure was made by the Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, in a statement, where he 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.

He called on Christians and all Nigerians alike to use the occasion of this year’s Easter to pray for an end to all security challenges bedevilling every part of the country.

The Minister assured 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 to the lives and property of the citizenry,” he said in the statement.

While wishing Christians at home and in the Diaspora a happy and peaceful Easter celebration, he also called on Nigerians to join hands with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in its determination to bring sustainable development and usher in prosperity for all.

Mr Aregbesola assured Nigerians that the nation is inexorably on the path to greatness, despite the present challenges confronting her.

“There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,” he stated, wishing all Christians a most blissful Easter celebration.
