The All Progressives Congress (APC) has charged Nigerians to dedicate themselves to more prayers during this year’s Easter celebration to seek divine intervention and guidance for the country’s leaders.
Chairman of APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, gave the charge in a statement yesterday in Abuja.
In the statement signed by his Director General, Press and Media, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, the APC helmsman also called for love, unity, peace, harmony and tolerance among Nigerians.
He urged religious leaders to use the occasion of Easter to preach peace, tolerance and unity among Nigerians. Buni also noted that the Easter period should be used to pray for Nigeria to overcome its challenges and for its prosperity.
He added: “As people of faith, we should dedicate ourselves to more prayers during Easter to seek divine intervention and guide our leaders right.
“We should see ourselves as a people with common dreams and aspirations for a greater Nigeria that is full of love, tolerance, unity and prosperity.
“We have no any other country than Nigeria; we should therefore work to unify and strengthen our dear country.” He further called on Nigerians to see a problem in any part of the country as a common and shared problem that should be fought collectively, wishing all Christians and Nigerians a peaceful Easter celebration, love and abundant peace.
