FG declares May 29 public holiday

The federal government, on Friday, declared May 29 a public holiday for the inauguration of President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration in Abuja on behalf of the federal government.

The minister said, “Democracy anywhere is an unfinished business and the only way it can keep developing and serve its end of being the vehicle to good governance and the welfare of all the people is by adhering to its tenets of rule of law, support for democratic institutions, promotion of free and responsible press and advancement of the frontiers of freedom for all the people”.

Mr Aregbesola urged Nigerians to also continue to promote ideals of peaceful coexistence and love for their neighbours, noting that Nigeria can only practice democracy and enjoy its dividends in a peaceful environment.

The minister also commended Nigerians for their strident efforts at achieving an unbroken civilian rule and successful change of governments since 1999.

Mr Aregbesola called for support and cooperation for Mr Tinubu’s administration, arguing that “the unbounded energy of the people is the nation’s greatest strength and will take the nation to its greatest height when it is positively deployed in its service.”

He also charged Nigerians to shun any form of violence and other untoward acts, assuring them that with all hands on deck, the future is very bright.
