The Federal government has declared Monday, June 14, 2021 as public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day celebration.
The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, who made the declaration on behalf of 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.
“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. No development can take place in an acrimonious environment,” he stressed.
“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 one anoother, understand one anoother, honour one anoother and live together in peace and prosperity,” Aregbesola stressed.
He assured that with the concerted efforts being put in place by the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration to secure the lives and property of Nigerians and stabilise the economy, the nation will continue to get better, noting that “there will surely be light at the end of the tunnel.”.
