The governing All Progressives Congress (APC) has enjoined Christians in Nigeria and the world over to emulate the virtues of love and sacrificewhich characterized the life of Jesus Christ.
In a message as signed By the party’s national publicity secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party stressed that these qualities are essential to the unity that Nigeria earnestly needs at this time.
The party also assured that the APC-led administration was determined to ensure the safe release of all still in captivity and the return of peace especially to the North East.
“In line with the true essence of Easter, the Party urges Christians to take cognizance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Cavalry for our sins.
“We call on all irrespective of religious affiliations to emulate the virtues of Jesus Christ as epitomized by his life of understanding, tolerance and sacrifice. Only then will we co-exist peacefully as a nation and collectively achieve the Nigeria of our dreams.
“As we gather around family, friends and loved ones for the festivities, we also urge Nigerians to remember in our thoughts and prayers the abducted schoolchildren who remain in the captivity of terrorists. We assure of the federal government’s solid commitment to ensure their safe release and bring lasting peace to the country’s North East.” The statement said.
