The Federal Government has declared Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 May as public holidays in celebration of this year’s Workers Day and Eidul-Fitr.
This was announced on Thursday by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the Federal Government.
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Shuaib Belgore, disclosed this in a statement.
He said the Minister congratulated workers across the country on this year’s celebration and 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.
According to the Minister, “Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead is incapable of working”
Aregbesola also congratulated Muslims on the success of this year’s Ramadan, urging them to imbibe and practice the virtues of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).
“The self-restrain, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, in order to be a better person and true worshipper”, the Minister advised all Muslims.
