FG - Public Holiday

The Federal Government has declared Monday 10th October 2022 public holiday to mark this year’s Eid-ul-Maulud celebration in commemoration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who made this declaration in a statement on behalf of the 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, Aregbesola admonished Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, patience, tolerance, and perseverance which are deep spiritual virtues that Prophet Muhammad exemplified, adding that doing so would guarantee peace, security, and harmony in the country.

 “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 statement added.

He 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 a prompt response from security agents.”
