By Amuda Dan Sulaiman Fab
A House of Representatives aspirant for Lokoja/Kogi Federal Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has called for peace, love and tolerance among Nigerians in the spirit of Easter celebration.
In his Easter message which he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokoja, Ndako has heartily felicitated Nigerians, the people of Kogi State and his constituents, particularly the Christians, as they join their brethren across the world in celebrating Easter.
Ndako who is currently the member representing Lokoja 2 State Constituency and Deputy Majority Leader in the Kogi State House of Assembly urged all Nigerians to pray for peace and security amidst seemingly intractable insecurity around Nigeria and an end to terrorism in the land.
According to him, Easter which is the season of the remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ marks the trial, sacrifice, victory and completion of the divine mandate of the author of the Christian faith.
The frontline aspirant appealed to all to practise the Christian virtues of sacrifice, patience, love and abiding faith in order for us as Nigerians to have a better tomorrow which has been symbolized in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
According to him, nations can be developed and grow bigger where Christian virtues of love, sacrifices for one another, patience and hope for a better future are in place.
Ndako who called on Nigerians to remain committed, faithful, hopeful, stressed the need for all to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s and Governor Yahaya Bello’s efforts in the challenge of building a better society that would be devoid of rampant insecurity, just as he prayed that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ will open a window for a better Nigeria with hard work and prayers.
He said, “As we celebrate the unique occasion, let us keep in mind the significance of the season, which is the perfect demonstration of sacrificial love to others. As the lent ended in triumph, the season should also rekindle our hope of victory over personal and communal challenges.
“I pray that the triumph of Christ will encourage all people of faith to be hopeful of victory against trials and challenges, whether as individuals or as a nation,” he prayed.
