The All Progressives Congress (APC) has tasked Nigerians to devote themselves to more prayers this Easter to seek divine intervention and guidance for the country’s leaders .

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Borno and the chairman of the APC, interim and planning committee of the extraordinary convention (CECPC), gave the charge in a statement Friday in Abuja.

A statement by Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, general director of the press and media of Buni, said that Buni also called for love, unity, peace, harmony and tolerance among Nigerians.

He called on religious leaders to use the occasion of Easter to preach peace, tolerance and unity among Nigerians.

Buni said the Easter period should be used to pray for Nigeria to overcome its challenges and for its prosperity.

“As people of faith, we should dedicate ourselves to more prayers during Easter to seek divine intervention and guide our leaders to the right.

“We must see ourselves as a people with common dreams and aspirations for a great Nigeria full of love, tolerance, unity and prosperity.

“We have no other country but Nigeria, so we must work to unify and strengthen our dear country,” Buni said.

He further called on Nigerians to view an issue in any part of the country as a common and shared issue that should be tackled collectively.

He wished all Christians and Nigerians peaceful Easter celebrations, love and abundant peace. (NOPE)
