As Christians celebrate Easter, Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has called for mutual respect among adherents of various faiths in the country, as this is the only guarantee for peaceful coexistence among different religions in the country.
In his Easter message signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki urged all Nigerians to unite in confronting the development challenges facing the nation and urged Nigerians to rededicate themselves to the service of God, the nation and humanity.
“I implore Nigerians to use the Easter period to renew their faith in God and strengthen the bond of friendship and brotherhood that has held the country united since the amalgamation in 1914.
“Among the essence of Easter is sacrifice, love for humanity and total submission to the will of God. These virtues should not be lost on us as Nigerians. Let’s continue to pray for a peaceful Nigeria that will be a pride to us and the future generation,” he added.
Saraki further reiterated the commitment of the Senate in supporting the efforts of the present administration to build a peaceful and prosperous Nigeria.
The Senate, he said, is committed to the enactment of legislations that will turn around the nation’s economy and called for the support of all Nigerians for President Muhammadu Buhari.
