The announcement was made by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, in a statement signed by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Begore, in Abuja on Wednesday.

In the statement, Aregbesola called on Christians to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace, and patience, which were attributes and practices of Jesus Christ, as exemplified by His ministry on earth.

He further urged Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for an end to the security challenges in parts of the country.

Aregbesola said “Security is everybody’s business. I, therefore, urge Nigerians and foreigners resident in our country to display a high sense of citizenship and public spiritedness by supporting the efforts of all security agencies in bringing peace and security of lives and property of the citizenry”.

The minister also assured the public that the Federal Government is doing all that is necessary to ensure a peaceful transition of government following the peaceful conduct of elections.

Aregbesola wished Christians in Nigeria and the Diaspora a happy and peaceful Easter celebration, enjoining them to love their neighbors through acts of kindness and generosity of spirit. He further urged those who have more to share their resources with the less privileged around them.
