The Chairman of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu wants Nigerians to use the period of Easter to further dedicate themselves to the peace and unity of the country.
Chief Nwosu made the call in his Easter message to Nigerians.
He said the period of Easter calls for deeper reflection on the grace of God and his love for mankind which is the essence of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The ADC Chairman, therefore, urged Nigerians to put aside differences of faith, ethnicity and political affiliations to forge a common front in defeating various forms of criminal activities that continue to pose serious threats to the nation.
He said it is only when Nigerians work together in unity and support security agencies that insecurity can be overcome.
“The commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ presents us with peace, hope, forgiveness and reconciliation.
It also presents us with an opportunity to reflect on the priceless sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross.
On Covid-19, Chief Nwosu urged Nigerians to work assiduously towards overcoming the pandemic by availing themselves to be vaccinated and also observing all laid down protocols.
“Last year, we marked Easter under a lockdown because of COVID-19. However, we now have some relief with the availability of vaccines and more awareness on prevention” he added.
We need to redouble our efforts in making sure that we participate in the vaccination exercise and also sensitise our people to adjust to living under the new normal.”
While wishing Nigerians a successful Easter celebration, Chief Nwosu called on Christians to continue to demonstrate the love of God to people of other faiths and let the light of God manifest in all their activities for the desired change in the nation.
