The Federal Government has declared Thursday, October 1st as public holiday to mark the nation’s 60th Independence Anniversary celebration.
The Minister of Interior, RAUF AREGBESOLA made the declaration today, congratulating all Nigerians on the Celebration of the Country’s Diamond Jubilee and assured them of Government’s unwavering commitment to the socio-economic transformation of the country.
AREGBESOLA further stated that although celebrating 60 years of independence really calls for pomp and pageantry, the nation cannot avoid the imperative of a low-keyed celebration as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He therefore called on all Nigerians to join hands together with the present Administration in its quest to ensure a better Nigeria for all citizens, both at home and abroad.
