Yuletide: FG Announces Dates For Public Holidays

Public Holidays
Minister of interior Rauf Aregbesola
The Federal Government of Nigeria has declared the 25th and 28th of December 2020 as well as January 1, 2021, as public holidays to mark the Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Year Celebrations respectively. 

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government as he urged Christians and all Nigerians both home and abroad to adopt the creed of Christ on faith, hope, and love. 

“We must emulate the life of humility, service, compassion, patience, peace, and righteousness that the birth and ministry of Jesus Christ signified, that will be the best way to know Christ and celebrate his birth,” he said.

The minister noted that peace and security are critical factors needed to enable the Government to accomplish its mission of revitalizing the economy, improving Foreign Direct Investments as well as generating employment opportunities for over 100 million Nigerian youths in the next 10 years. 

He advised Nigerians and Christians in particular, to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines, as stipulated by relevant authorities, during and after the yuletide, especially with the second wave of the outbreak of the disease. 

While admonishing all Nigerians to remain focused, determined, patient, and patriotic, Aregbesola expressed confidence that the year 2021 would be a better year for all Nigerians and therefore urged Christians to use the period to pray for Nigeria.
