Easter: Reps Minority Caucus Urges Unity, Resilience Among Nigerians

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives has called on Nigerians to remain resolute and firm in the pursuit of better Nigeria.

The caucus in an Easter message to Nigerians signed by its Leader, Hon. Kinggsley Chinda; Whip, Hon. Ali Isa; Deputy Leader, Hon. Aliyu Madaki and Deputy Whip, Hon. George Ozodinobi while acknowledging the problems facing the country, stated that they “remain very confident and positive that God is on our side and with us.”

The caucus therefore called on all Christians and indeed the entire people of the country to use the Easter period unify the country as Jesus Christ would.

Part of the statement reads:

“As a caucus, we most heartily rejoice with our Christian brethren on this auspicious occasion of Easter which is celebrated globally in Christiandom to mark the liberation of mankind through the triumph of our Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ by His death and resurrection.


“As we mark this year’s Easter, we urge Christian faithfuls to remind themselves of the essence and purpose of life and reflect deeply on the principles of self sacrifice, tolerance, forgiveness, love for one another, good neighbourliness and peaceful coexistence with others, which are some of the qualities which Jesus Christ represents, died for and resurrected for the redemption of mankind.


“We also wish to urge that this Easter will further afford our Christian brethren the opportunity to continue to pray for the unity, peace and progress of our dear country, Nigeria, particularly in view of the numerous economic and security challenges confronting us as a people, including poverty, hunger, unabated killings, abductions, kidnappings and general insecurity that have continued to sweep across the county.


“Equally of concern to us is the need for us to remain steadfast and resilient and never to give up our hopes for a better Nigeria. Indeed, we must remain firm, resolute and even more determined as we play our respective parts in the task of building a nation that genuinely meets the yearnings and aspirations of teeming Nigerian masses.
