Nigeria: PDP Urges Peace, Unity At Easter

press release

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on all Nigerians, irrespective of religious persuasions to use the occasions of Good Friday and Easter celebrations to pray for the nation and rededicate themselves to the values that unite and bind all citizens as one people under God.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Friday said Nigeria is blessed with abundant human and natural resources but added that they can only be harnessed adequately for the good of all, if the citizens learn to live in peace and harmony with one another.

Urging a lesson from the underlying Resurrection message of Easter, the PDP stressed that Nigerians as peace-loving people have shown resilience and determination to live together and succeed as a people adding that the nation will surely overcome its challenges just as exemplified in the triumph of Jesus Christ over death.

The PDP therefore urged the citizens to use this year's Easter celebrations to permanently put behind all divisive tendencies and focus only on the good of the nation and the welfare of one another.

"Let us use this Easter to rededicate ourselves to all the things that bind us together. Our continuous peace and unity remain non-negotiable. Let old things be passed away and let all things be new as we join hands together to ensure that the labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain", the statement said.
