The Federal Government has announced Friday 7 and Monday 10, April 2023 as public holidays to mark this year’s Easter celebration. This was disclosed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola in a statement.
The statement which was signed by the Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Begore, on Wednesday, urged Christians to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace and patience which were attributes and practices of Jesus Christ, as exemplified by His ministry on the earth.
He equally called on Christians and all Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration to pray for an end to the security challenges in parts of the country.
While wishing Christians at home and in the Diaspora a happy and peaceful Easter celebration, he also enjoins them to love their neighbours through acts of kindness and generosity of spirit, with the well-to-do sharing their substance with the less privileged around them.
