The Nigerian government has declared Monday June 14th 2021 as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day.
This was disclosed in a statement by the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Shuaib Belgore. In the statement, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, congratulated Nigerians on the occasion.
He advised all citizens to support the present administration in its efforts at ensuring a united and prosperous nation.
Mr 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.
“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 said.
