The Federal Government has declared December 27 and 28, 2021, as well as January 3, 2022, as public holidays to mark Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year celebrations.
Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who made the announcement yesterday in Abuja, felicitated with Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora on the festivities.
He enjoined Christians to internalise the doctrines of faith, hope and love as espoused by Christ.
Aregbesola noted that peace and security were two critical conditions for economic development and prosperity.
He, therefore, urged the adherents and Nigerians to use the festive period to pray for the total eradication of insecurity in the country and observe all extant COVID-19 safety guidelines.
