The Federal Government has declared October 1, 2020 as a public holiday to mark Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, announced the holiday in a statement by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, on Tuesday.

According to the statement, Aregbesola praised Nigerians for the feats in economy, education and creative sector, amongst others.

“Though celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp and pageantry, but with the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act cautiously, we cannot avoid the imperative of a low-keyed celebration at this time.

“While wishing Nigerians a fruitful independence celebration, he reminded them of the fact that our founding fathers, in spite of the differences in faith, tribe and tongue came together for Nigeria’s independence.”
