FG Declares Monday Holiday For Democracy Day, Preaches Peace

The Federal Government has declared Monday, June 14, as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day.

This is as the government warned against agitations capable of threatening the peace of the country. Says the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola,

The minister urged Nigerians to embrace the spirit of brotherliness for peace to thrive in the nation. The statement was titled, ‘FG declares Monday June 14, 2021 to mark this year’s Democracy Day celebration.’

Aregbesola says any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all, saying the space known as Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if all citizens love his or her neighbour and embrace the spirit of brotherliness.

Also, as the nation marks another Democracy Day in history, it should reflect on the efforts of the founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria remains one united and indivisible entity. No development can take place in an acrimonious environment.
