Dr Shuaib Belgore, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, said this in an Abuja statement on Thursday.
According to him, the proclamation was made on behalf of the Federal Government by Minister of Interior Rauf Aregbesola.
The minister wished employees all throughout the country a happy holiday.
He also praised them for their dedication, hard work, and sacrifice, noting that their efforts were primarily responsible for the country’s grandeur and the respect Nigeria today commands in the international community.
“Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead is incapable of working.”
As a result, Aregbesola urged them to adopt a productivity culture, emphasising that the goal of work was production.
“It is productivity that leads to satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation.
“It is, therefore, the path to national and individual prosperity.”
He, on the other hand, advised them to raise the standard of their profession in accordance with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s efforts to rev up the vehicle of government and ensure that all Nigerians benefit to the fullest extent possible.
The minister also congratulated all Muslims on the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month.
Aregbesola urged all Muslims to absorb and practise the values of compassion, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice, and good neighbourliness that the Holy Prophet Muhammad displayed (Peace be upon Him).
“The self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, to be a better person and true worshipper.”
The minister expressed optimism that the security issues in various regions of the nation will be resolved shortly.
He went on to say that the administration was working hard and taking all necessary steps to ensure that Nigerians could live in peace.
Aregbesola reassured Nigerians that President Buhari’s government was completely dedicated to ensuring the safety of citizens and foreigners alike.
He praised the security services for their achievements in the fight against criminals around the country, as well as the restoration of calm to formerly troubled areas.
He asked Nigerians to play a role in the country’s security by being watchful and reporting suspicious people and activities to the local law enforcement agency.
He did, however, warn Nigerians that security is a shared duty that cannot be put only in the hands of the government.
Aregbesola wished all Muslims a joyous Eid al-Fitr and prayed for Allah’s peace, blessings, and favours.
