Naija@60: FG declares Thursday public holiday


The Federal government of Nigeria has declared Thursday, October 1, as public holiday to mark the nation’s 60th Independence anniversary celebration. 

The announcement was made by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the Federal Government. 

Meanwhile, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday. 

Mr Aregbesola congratulated 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. 

According to him, "our warmth, welcoming spirit and love as well as the abundant wealth inherent in our human capital and the richness of our land, makes Nigeria unarguably the leading black nation in the world and Africa’s pride and beacon of hope, if we can rally ourselves together to harness our potentials. 

"A country of about 200 million people whose natural talent, grit and passion glitter like the precious DIAMOND that we are. Nigerians are sparkling like diamonds in the pack, whether in Academia, Business, Innovation, Music, Movie, Entertainment, Fashion and culture. 

"We are indeed the leading black nation in the entire world and no doubt Africa’s pride and beacon of hope."
