The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has called on the Christian community to be peace makers for the country to witness peace in the country.
Speaking during a special New Year Mass held at the SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Nyanya, Abuja, yesterday, Onaiyekan prayed for continued peace in the country, adding that although the year 2012 was challenging for the country, Nigerians must continue to pray and make peace for the nation to move forward.
"As we begin the New Year, we ask God to save us and our nation. Many things happened in 2012 but let's not remember the bad ones. Let us pray that the problems are washed away.
"If you count your blessings and see what God has done for you in 2012, you'll be surprised. We must thank Him for everything. May He bring us peace. But you should know that He won't bring us peace if we don't do things that make peace," he said.
