FG to mark public holiday Oct 1



The government of Nigeria has said it will observe October 1, as public holiday to mark the nation’s 61 independence anniversary.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola on Wednesday afternoon.

Aregbesola, however, assured Nigerians of Government’s commitment to tackling and eradicating all forms of challenges –be they political, socio-economic or otherwise.

The Minister emphasized that celebrating Nigeria’s 61st Independence anniversary is necessary, but that the safety of the citizenry is President Muhammadu Buhari’s huge concern, especially the resurgence of the COVID-19 Delta variant.
