The Kogi Central senator-elect, Engr. Abubakar Ohere, has congratulated the Christian community in Nigeria on the Easter celebration.

In a goodwill message he personally signed, Ohere said the celebrations are a worthy finale to the period of fasting, prayer and self-denial which they had gone through in the past 40 days of Lent.

Engr. Ohere urged Nigerians to use the occasion of the Easter celebration to rededicate themselves to the virtues of justice, forgiveness, and reconciliation, which he said were the essences of the ministry of Jesus Christ on earth.

Engr. Ohere further urged Nigerians across the nation, irrespective of their religious or socio-political divide, to close ranks and work harmoniously in order to overcome the challenges facing the country.

He tasked the Christian faithful to use this period of Easter to pray for the survival of Nigeria, saying the current situation in the country requires divine intervention to overcome the myriads of its problems. He enjoined Christians to imbibe the teachings of Jesus Christ and the lessons of Easter which emphasised peace, love, perseverance and forgiveness.

Engr. Ohere also canvassed for tolerance between religious bodies in the country, pointing out that to the best of his knowledge, no religion preaches violence but peace, love and good neighbourliness.

He added that the nation’s challenges could be surmounted if citizens develop positive attitude towards nationhood and harnesses various talents for positive goals.
