The Federal Government has declared Friday, March 29, and Monday, April 1, as public holidays to observe Easter.

Dr Aishetu Ndayako, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, announced this on behalf of Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, in a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja.

Tunji-Ojo emphasised the significance of Easter, urging both Christians and Nigerians to embody the values of love, forgiveness, and compassion exemplified by Jesus Christ.

He highlighted the role of these virtues in fostering social cohesion, reducing conflicts, and promoting cooperation, ultimately contributing to Nigeria’s socio-economic development.

Tunji-Ojo called for acts of charity and generosity towards the less privileged, aligning with President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.

He extended Easter greetings to Christians worldwide and urged Nigerians to collaborate with the Tinubu administration in achieving sustainable development and prosperity for all.  (NAN) www.nannews.ng
