Easter: Ekweremadu preaches Sacrifice, love and justice
Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, says the mounting challenges facing the nation could be affectively addressed if Nigerians unite in love, peace, and with every sense of justice and sacrifice as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
He stated this in his Easter message to the Christian faithful on Saturday.
Ekweremadu regretted that the country had seriously retrogressed because love had waxed cold, while injustice was palpable, thereby resulting in bad blood, disunity, and incompetence even in the most critical matters that affect the nation.
“There was sacrifice as symbolised by Good Friday before there was ever a resurrection as represented by Easter. Therefore, at Easter, we are reminded by the sacrifice of Christ, who paid the supreme price for the salvation of mankind that we can actually take Nigeria back to the pinnacle of glory if we sacrifice ethno-religious and numerous other narrow interests for the collective good and progress of the country.
“This is a call for us to unite, love, and treat one another with every sense of justice so that the whole nation is effectively mobilised to confront and surmount our numerous challenges with oneness of mind.
“It is a call be our brother’s keeper in order to make the much-needed progress as a people”, he stated.
Ekweremadu wished Nigerians a hitch-free Easter celebration, urging them to also seize the opportunity to pray for the nation.
