As Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, the Chairman of Senate Committee on Finance, Senator Solomon Adeola, has called on all Nigerians to pray for peace and security amidst serious insecurity around Nigeria.
In his Easter Message to the people, the Senator appealed to all to practice the Christian virtues of sacrifice, patience, love and abiding faith for a better tomorrow as exemplified in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ stressing that it is not possible to develop any society where the Christian virtues of love, sacrifices for one another, patience and hope for a better future are lacking.
“Our nation is faced with rampant insecurity from Boko Haram Insurgents, bandits’ attacks, kidnapping, herders/farmers clashes that are not only hampering the progress of the nation but threatening its existence. In addition to joining efforts at resolving these challenges, I call on all to pray for peace and security during the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ” he stated.
Senator Adeola called on Nigerians to remain hopeful and support Government’s efforts in the challenge of building a better society devoid of rampant insecurity adding that as the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ opened a window for salvation of sinners to make heaven, there is hope for a better Nigeria with hard work and prayers.
