The federal government of Nigeria has declared Monday, may 29 as public holiday.

The announcement was made by the minister of interior Abdulrahman Dambazau on Thursday, May 25.

The public holiday, Dambazau said, is to enable Nigerians celebrate the May 29 Democracy Day.

In a statement signed by the director overseeing the permanent secretary’s office Muhammadu Maccido, the minister also congratulated Nigerians for witnessing another Democracy Day which marked the second anniversary of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Maccido assured Nigerians that the present administration will continue to channel its effort towards guaranteeing security, revitalizing the economy and tackling corruption.

He also said that the present administration has achieved a lot in securing lives and property of Nigerians especially those in the North-East area which has been ravaged by insurgency.

Maccido added that the recent statistics by the National Bureau of Statistics have also shown a tremendous growth in the nation’s Gross Domestic Product.

He said: “No doubt, the nation is closer to getting out of recession, particularly with the recently launched Economic Recovery and Growth Plan which seeks to revitalize the nation’s economy soonest.”

“With the recently signed Executive Orders on Ease of Doing Business, we have opened our doors wider for both domestic and foreign investors.”

The minister also urged all Nigerians to collaborate with President Buhari-led administration to ensure a sustained effort in building a peace and enduring democratic legacy in Nigeria.

We can report that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration took over power from former president Goodluck Jonathan on May 29, 2015, after a successful general election in April of the same year.
