The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff,
has urged Nigerins to use the occasion of the Easter to renew the bond of love, forgiveness and peaceful co-existence , irrespective of religious, ethnic and political persuasions.
The party said in a goodwill message issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh on Saturday that such devotion to national unity and harmony is paramount to overcoming the economic, social and security challenges presently confronting the nation.
“Indeed, the occasion of Easter presents us a great lesson in faith in the Almighty God and the triumph of good over evil, the very reason we must humble ourselves and seek divine intervention for our dear country.
The party said “just as Easter represents the triumph of life over death, Nigerians can draw strength and inspiration to overcome the division, disagreements and bitterness that now threaten the unity and corporate existence of our dear nation”.
“Our unity is our strongest source of strength as a nation. We must therefore collectively determine to end the bitterness, hostilities and division that keep us apart and seek only the virtues of love, forgiveness, charity and such others that unite us as a people.
