As Nigerians join their counterparts across the world to celebrate Easter, the Senator representing Cross River North Senatorial District, Senator Stephen Adi Odey, has tasked his constituents and Nigerians on harmony among each other in order to ensure peace and unity across Nigeria.
Senator Odey in an Easter message made available to journalists on Saturday in Abuja, prayed for peace, nation’s economic growth as well as religious tolerance among the citizens.
He called on Christians in the country to use the occasion of the Easter celebration to renew their faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour of mankind and pray for peace and economic development of Nigeria.
Odey said: “As people of faith, we should be committed to more prayers for each other during the Easter to seek divine intervention and guide our leaders right.
“We have no any other country than Nigeria. We should therefore work to unify and build the country of our dream,” he said.
He said Easter marks the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls for all humanity, especially for Christians faithful and should not be used for evil behaviours.
He stressed that this year’s celebration is another opportunity for fervent prayers for a new dawn and prosperous future for individuals and the Nigeria nation at large.
He urged Nigerians irrespective of religious inclination to use the occasion of Easter for sober reflection on how they can add value to the lives of neighbours and tolerate one another in the spirit of peace and unity.
