Kalu, in his Easter message Friday in Abuja, described the season as a good opportunity for Christians to embrace the exemplary life of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Holy Bible.
The former governor of Abia urged Nigerians to imbue forgiveness, sacrifice, piety and brotherhood in their daily endeavors, regardless of ethnic, political and religious differences.
According to him, Nigeria is better as a united and indivisible entity because the supporters of a divided nation do not mean well to the country.
“I join with our Christian brothers and sisters in celebrating yet another Easter.
“We are to appreciate God for the gift of life and endless blessings.
“This season should be about self-assessment as individuals and as a people.
“We must reflect on our lives in the service of God and of humanity.
“Jesus Christ died as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind and as such the world can be a better place to live, if he is everyone, show love, peace, sacrifice and unity as illustrated by Jesus Christ.
“We must be selfless, patriotic and steadfast in our efforts for national growth and progress.
“For us, the political class, it is necessary to engage more and to connect with the base in order to improve the common lot of the population.
“Citizens must support government at all levels by complementing the heads of business in order to take Nigeria to enviable heights.
“As we celebrate Easter, it is imperative that we shy away from division, bitterness politics and social vices,” he said.
Kalu, while urging the Christian community to extend the joy of Easter to people of different faiths, wished Nigerians a peaceful and joyful celebration. (NOPE)
