The Federal Government has declared Monday, May 3, 2021, a public holiday to commemorate the International Workers’ Day Celebration for the year.

This was contained in a statement by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, who congratulated Nigerian workers for witnessing this year’s celebration.

Aregbesola lauded the workers for their patience, understanding and support in driving the policies and programmes of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in its determination to move the country to the next level of socio-economic development.

The minister in a statement issued by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Shuaibu Belgore, on Thursday called for more dedication and patriotism from all Nigerian workers and the labour unions.

He said, “The challenges of the moment will soon be over as the government is committed to the security of lives and property of all Nigerians.”

The minister added, “Government is putting all strategies in place to curb the challenges of insecurity in the country. I, therefore, call on the labour force and all patriotic citizens to be fully committed to the task of putting insecurity to a permanent end as much as possible.”
