The annual Baptism and Baptism Day is one of the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ethiopia. This great festival is a religious festival celebrated all over our country and it has played a significant role in building the good image of our country as a tourist attraction.
It is a great occasion for all the people of our country, especially the followers of the faith, to freely express their faith in public, to strengthen their mutual relations, to develop their spiritual values, and to set an example for the people of the world to live together in tolerance and respect.
According to the Ethiopian Federal Police Commission, the Federal, Regional, Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa Police Commissions, as well as the National Intelligence and Security Service and other security and justice bodies are working together to ensure the peaceful celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles and Baptism.
The commission said it has deployed a large number of security forces in all parts of the country to ensure the peaceful observance of the Feast of Tabernacles and Baptism, with the support of the entire peace-loving people of the country.
The commission said it was strictly forbidden to fire fireworks during the celebrations, as it would create an environment conducive to anti-peace forces.
Police, on the other hand, have received information from the public that some anti-peace forces have set up various personal agendas to disrupt the celebrations and cause other hazards.
Therefore, the people who own the peace should be aware of this and take the necessary precautions and contact the police on 0115-52-63-03, 0115-52-40-77, 0115-54-36-78 and 0115- in case of doubt. The commission said it will be able to use the free telephone lines at 54-36-81 and 987 and 816, as well as provide information to local security forces.
Finally, the Federal Police and all our country’s police commissions wish you a happy, united, happy and happy New Year for all Christians.
