The Federal Government has declared Monday, June 14, 2021 as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day.
Rauf Aregbesola, the minister of interior made the announcement on behalf of the Federal Government, urged Nigerians to support the present administration in its efforts at ensuring a United and prosperous Nation.
He also stated that any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all.
“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.
With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honour each other and live together in peace and prosperity. There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,”
