Democracy Day: FG announces Monday public holiday

The Federal Government has announced Monday, 13th June, 2022, as public holiday, to commemorate this year’s Democracy Day celebration.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, through the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Dr Shuaib Belgore, via a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja, made the announcement of Monday as public holiday.

He said the declaration was made on behalf of the Federal Government.

The minister sent congratulatory message to the people of Nigeria on the occasion and advocate their supports for the administration in ensuring a secured, united and prosperous nation.

“He reminded Nigerians of the challenges we have faced and overcome, including a civil war, and said any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all, saying the space known as Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if all citizens love their neighbours and embrace the spirit of brotherliness.

“As we mark another Democracy Day in the history of our dear country, let us reflect on the efforts of our founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria remains one united, secured, peaceful and an indivisible entity, noting that no development can take place in an acrimonious environment.

“With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down, but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honour each other and live together in peace and prosperity,” the statement added.

“There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,” he stated.
