Ahead of the May 29 inauguration of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the federal government has declared Monday a public holiday.
According to a statement on Friday by Dr Shuaib Belgore, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, the outgoing Minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on Thursday in Abuja.
Belgore affirmed that the minister called on Nigerians to promote democracy through adherence to the rule of law and upholding all democratic institutions.
Aregbesola charged Nigerians to shun any form of violence and other untoward acts.
“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,” he stated.
