2023: FG declares public holiday for workers’ day


As workers celebrate their day on Monday, May 1, 2023, the federal government has declared that day as public holiday.

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, disclosed this on Friday.

Barely a week ago, Nigeria marked the Eid-el-Fitr holidays.

Aregbesola, in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Shuaib Belgore, on Friday, lauded Nigerian workers for their hard work, diligence and sacrifice.

He added that workers’ efforts are largely responsible for the greatness of the country and the respect Nigeria now commands in the comity of nations.

“There is dignity in labour; we have to have dedication and commitment to the work we do because it is vital to nation-building”, he stated.
