JUST IN: Federal Government Declares Monday Public Holiday

Federal Government has declared Monday Public Holiday.

Newsone reports that the Federal Government of Nigeria has declared Monday, October 10 public holiday to mark this year’s Eid-ul-Mawlid celebration in commemoration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad.

This online news platform understands that the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who declared Monday Public Holiday on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, congratulated all Muslims both at home and in the Diaspora for witnessing this year’s occasion.

In a statement signed by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Belgore, on Thursday, October 6, 2022, Newsone Nigeria reports that Aregbesola admonished Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, patience, tolerance, and perseverance which are deep spiritual virtues and which Prophet Muhammad exemplified, adding that doing so would guarantee peace, security, and harmony in the country.

The statement read in part: “Ogbeni Aregbesola enjoins Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to refrain from violence, lawlessness and other acts of criminality.

“As the indisputable leader of our race, we must demonstrate responsible leadership in Africa.”

The Minister urged Nigerians to be security conscious, asking them to report any suspicious persons or activities to the nearest security agency and through the N-Alert application on Android and IOS, saying “when you see something do N-Alert, as this would elicit prompt response from security agents.”
