FG declares Friday, Monday public holiday

The Federal Government has declared Friday, March 29 and Monday, April 1, 2024 as public holidays to mark the 2024 Good Friday and Easter Monday celebrations, respectively.

Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, Minister of Interior, made the declaration on behalf of the federal government in a statement by the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Aishetu Ndayako, on Wednesday.

Tunji-Ojo urged Christians and all Nigerians to emulate the sacrifice and love displayed by Jesus Christ in dying for the redemption of man.

“Easter, beyond religious significance, promotes values of love, forgiveness, and compassion, which are essential for social cohesion and harmony,” the minister said.

He urged Nigerians to show acts of charity and generosity to help alleviate the material conditions of the less privileged amongst them.
