Eid-el Fitr: FG declares May 2, 3 Public Holidays for Workers’ Day, Sallah

The Federal Government has declared Monday and Tuesday, May 2 and 3 as public holidays to mark this year’s Workers Day and Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations.

 

Mr Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, made the declaration on Thursday on behalf of the Federal Government.

He congratulated workers across the country on the occasion and commended their hard work, diligence, and sacrifice.

He commended workers for their hard work, diligence, and sacrifice, noting that their efforts were largely responsible for the greatness of the country and the respect Nigeria now commands in the comity of nations.

The statement partly read, “Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead are incapable of working.

“Labour is the very essence of humanity,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by the permanent secretary of the ministry, Dr Shuaib Belgore. “We are alive because we work and only the dead is incapable of working.”

Aregbesola, therefore, enjoined the workers to imbibe the culture of productivity, saying “The end of work is productivity.

“It is productivity that leads to the satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation. It is, therefore, the path to national and individual prosperity.”

The minister urged workers to raise the bar of their trade in line with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration’s drive to rev up the vehicle of governance and make all the people of Nigeria derive maximum benefit from the nation.

Similarly, he congratulated all Muslims across the country for the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.

“Aregbesola assured Nigerians that the Buhari regime was fully committed to the security of life and property of every citizen and foreigners alike, urging Nigerians to be part of the nation’s security architecture by being vigilant and reporting suspicious individuals and activities to law enforcement agencies.”
