FG Declares Monday, Tuesday Public Holidays
The Federal Government has declared Monday, 2nd and Tuesday, 3rd May, 2022 as public holidays to mark this year’s Workers Day and Eid-el-Fitr respectively.
Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, who made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government congratulated workers across the country on this year’s Workers Day celebration.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Dr Shuaib Belgore, on Thursday and made available to newsmen in Abuja.
Aregbesola 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.
According to the Minister, “Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead are incapable of working.”
Aregbesola enjoined 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.”
