Post created on 12:26 pm
Federal Government on Thursday declared Monday, June 14, 2021, as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day.
Aregbesola in the statement urged Nigerians to reflect on the nation’s country challenges and support the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari towards resolving them.
He appealed to Nigerians to drop all forms of agitation that threatens the unity and peace of the country.
According to the Minister, Nigeria would be a haven of peace, unity and progress if all citizens love his or her neighbour and embrace the spirit of brotherliness.
“As we mark another Democracy Day in the history of our dear country, let us reflect on the efforts of our founding fathers and ensure that Nigeria remains one United and Indivisible Entity. No development can take place in an acrimonious environment.
“With the challenges we face in Nigeria today, I see an opportunity for us not to break up or break down but to break open; open up to ourselves in truth so that we may appreciate each other, understand each other, honour each other and live together in peace and prosperity”, Aregbesola said.
He assured that with the concerted efforts being put in place by the Buhari-led Administration to secure the lives and property of Nigerians and stabilise the economy, the nation will continue to get better.
