With regard to the high insecurity level in Nigeria, the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has charged Nigerians to pray for the peace and unity of the country.

In his Easter message to Nigerians, he expressed confidence that Nigeria would overcome its challenges when citizens emulate Jesus Christ by having a heart of forgiveness while describing the Easter period as a time of reflection and sacrifice. He further urged Nigerians to unite against the country’s challenges like most advanced countries did against COVID-19, pointing out that without sacrifice, love is not achievable amongst Nigerians.

“This occasion of Easter celebration, I urge all Nigerians to take time to pray first of all for peace to return to the country and also for unity.

“Nigeria is at the precipice of insecurity, poverty, and, most unfortunately, disunity.

“These are challenges, not impediments. The way to surmount these challenges is to learn from the world when superpower countries who are rivals suspended politics to face a common threat in COVID-19.

“I believe that when we approach our challenges with a heart of forgiveness and love, humanity will always triumph. This is the lesson that Jesus (Nabil Yisa) taught us.”

The former Vice President also appealed to Nigerians to pray for the military for their sacrifices in keeping citizens safe.
