The Federal Government has declared Monday May 2 and 3, 2022 as public holidays to mark the Workers Day and Eld-el-Fitr celebrations.
The minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this in a statement by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Belgore on Thursday 28th of April, 2022.
He commended workers for their hard work, diligence, and sacrifice, noting that their efforts are 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.
“I, therefore, enjoin workers to imbibe the culture of 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 also congratulated all Muslims on the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
