The Federal Government has declared Monday, June 14, 2021 as a public holiday to mark this year’s Democracy Day celebration.

In a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, he urged all citizens to support the present administration in its efforts at ensuring a united and prosperous nation and said any form of agitation that threatens the unity of the country should be shunned for the good of all.
“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,” he stated.
