He said, “As people of faith, we should dedicate ourselves to more prayers during Easter to seek divine intervention and guide our leaders right.

“We should see ourselves as a people with common dreams and aspirations for a greater Nigeria that is full of love, tolerance, unity and prosperity. We have no other country than Nigeria; we should therefore work to unify and strengthen our dear country.”

He further called on Nigerians to see a problem in any part of the country as a common and shared problem that should be fought collectively, and wished all Christians and Nigerians a peaceful Easter celebration, love and abundant peace.
