Minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola. 

The federal government has declared May 2 and May 3 as public holidays to mark the 2022 Workers’ Day and Eid-Al-Fitr celebration, respectively.

Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior, announced the development in a statement issued on Thursday by Shuaib Belgore, permanent secretary, ministry of interior.

According to the statement, Aregbesola commended workers across the country for their “hard work, diligence and sacrifice”.

“Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead are incapable of working,” he said.

“The end of work is productivity. It is productivity that leads to the satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation. It is, therefore, the path to national and individual prosperity.”

He also advised workers to continue to support the present administration in its “drive to rev up the vehicle of governance and make all the people of Nigeria derive maximum benefit from the nation”.

On the forthcoming Eid-Al-Fitr celebration, the minister extended his congratulations to Muslims for successfully completing the month of Ramadan.

“The self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, in order to be a better person and true worshipper,” he said.

He also assured Nigerians that the government is making efforts to ensure that security challenges are addressed, just as he commended security agencies for “the successes recorded in the fight against criminals across the country and the peace that has returned to the formerly embattled places”.
