The Federal Government has declared May 2 and 3 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.
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.
The minister also congratulated all Muslims on the successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
