The Federal Government has declared Monday, October 3, 2022, as a public holiday to mark Nigeria’s 62nd Independence anniversary.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who made the declaration, on behalf of the Federal Government, congratulated Nigerians on this year’s celebration and assured them of the government’s commitment to tackling challenges facing the nation.

He said, “The world is going through dire economic and security challenges, which have also affected our nation. However, I am assuring us all that the government will not abandon the people, but will continue to confront all these challenges with all the might at our disposal until respite comes our way.”

In a communique signed by Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, Aregbesola said, “Our warmth, welcoming spirit and love, as well as our unbounded human capital and the richness of our land, make 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 potential, we shall be the greatest nation on the earth.”

He called on Nigerians to use the occasion to reflect on the challenges facing the nation and the role individuals can play in addressing them.

He also urged citizens to work hard and shun temptations to get rich quick by criminal and other immoral means, saying only through productivity can an individual and the nation create wealth.
