Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa urged the people of the state to never give up hope for a better Nigeria, despite the current insecurity in the country.

Fintiri gave the advice on celebrating Easter this year, according to a statement released on Friday by his press secretary, Mr. Humwashi Wonosikou, in Yola.

The governor also advised the people to play their role of true citizens, out of love and sacrifice, for the general good of society.

The statement read in part: “As we celebrate, let us remember that our lives are of great use and great value.

“We must never give up hope for a better Nigeria and as citizens of Adamawa State, let’s play our roles as true citizens, out of love and sacrifice for the general good of society.

“The holy day marks that moment in time when good has overcome evil, hope has overcome despair, and life has triumphed over death.

“As we celebrate the commemoration of the central event in the history of Christendom, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, let us learn the tolerance and sacrifice taught by the teachings of Jesus,” said Fintiri

He urged the citizens of the state to tolerate, live in peace and harmony with one another, regardless of their differences, asserting that the greatest legacy left to the people by Jesus Christ was love, tolerance and sacrifice.

The governor challenged the people to show love and make sacrifices in order to maintain the harmonious and peaceful coexistence, for which the Adamawa people were known.

He reminded people that when they celebrate Easter, they must strictly adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols in all their gatherings.

Likewise, the acting Murum Mbula of Mbula chiefdom in the state, Mr. Feny Fwa, advised the residents of the state to live in peace with each other for the economic development of the state and the Nigeria as a whole.

The traditional ruler, in an Easter message, observed that no meaningful development was possible in a crisis situation.

“I call on our people in the Mbula chiefdom, especially the young people, to renounce all forms of drug addiction and to engage in entrepreneurship for self-sufficiency.

“In addition, our farmers and herders must live in peace with each other for the common interest and the development of our region”. Said Fwa. (NOPE)
