The Peoples Democratic Party has called on Nigerians, irrespective of religious persuasions to use the occasions of Good Friday and Easter celebrations to pray for the nation.
This is contained in a statement signed by Mr. Olise Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Friday.
Metuh also urged Nigerians to rededicate themselves to the values that unite and bind all citizens as one people under one God.
Metuh said Nigeria was blessed with human and natural resources that could be harnessed for the good of all, if the citizens learnt to live together in peace and harmony.
The party spokesman stressed that Nigerians as peace-loving people had shown resilience and determination to live together and succeed as a people.
He expressed the hope that the nation would surely overcome its challenges as exemplified in the triumph of Jesus Christ over death.
Metuh, therefore, urged Nigerians to use this year’s Easter celebrations to permanently put behind all divisive tendencies and focus only on the good of the nation and the welfare of one another.
“Let us use this Easter to rededicate ourselves to all the things that bind us together. Our continuous peace and unity remain non-negotiable.
“Let old things be passed away and let all things be new as we join hands together to ensure that the labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain,” he said.
