Democracy Day: FG Declares Monday As Public Holiday

To mark this year’s Democracy Day on the 12th of June, the Federal Government has declared Monday, June 14 as a public holiday.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, in a statement on Wednesday by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Belgore.

According to the statement, “The Federal Government, congratulated Nigerians on this occasion and urged all citizens to support the present administration in its efforts at ensuring a united and prosperous nation.”

The statement read further that, “Aregbesola said any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all, saying the space known as Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if all citizens love his or her neighbour and embrace the spirit of brotherliness.”

It added that, “As we mark another Democracy Day in the history of our dear country, let us reflect on the efforts of our founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria remains one united and indivisible entity.”

The statement also stressed that, “No development can take place in an acrimonious environment. With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honour each other and live together in peace and prosperity.”

“There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,” the statement added.
