While wishing Muslims a happy Eid-el-Kabir, Aregbesola urged Nigerians to take responsibility by using the N-Alerts application to alert law enforcement to any suspicious people or criminal activity they saw nearby. This is especially important during this festival as N-Alerts has been designed to help mitigate security challenges with prompt response from security agencies.


All Nigerians were urged by him to be watchful and alert for trespassers in their neighbourhoods. As we celebrate this year’s festival, “we must all take responsibility for the security of lives and property,” he said.

Aregbesola pleaded with all Nigerians to unite, pool our resources, and put our heads, hearts, and souls together in order to achieve a state of relative peace for peaceful coexistence and put an end to insecurities in Nigeria.


The Minister reassured all Nigerians that the government would uphold the rule of law, maintain law and order, and maintain peace at all times.
