Easter Celebrations: FG declares March 29, April 1 as public holidays


The Federal Government has declared Friday, March 29 and Monday, 1st April, as public holidays to mark 2024 Good Friday and Easter Monday.

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, made the declaration through a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Aishetu Ndayako.

He urged Christians and all Nigerians in general to emulate the sacrifice and love displayed by Jesus Christ in dying for the redemption of man.

According to the Minister, Easter, beyond religious significance, promotes values of love, forgiveness and compassion which are essential for social cohesion and harmony.

He called on Christians to imbibe these virtues as they are capable of impacting positively on the socio-economic development in Nigeria by fostering unity, reducing conflicts and encouraging cooperation among Nigerians.
