Easter: Bwari coun­cil boss greets Chris­tians, com­mis­er­ates with Nyanya vic­tims

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Hus­sein Ya­haya

The Chair­man of Bwari Area Coun­cil, Mr. Peter Yo­hanna Ushafa, has called on the Chris­tians to al­ways live har­mo­niously with their neigh­bours in the in­ter­est of peace­ful co-ex­is­tence.

The chair­man, who made the call in his Easter mes­sage to them and the en­tire res­i­dents of the coun­cil, also urged Chris­tians to al­ways live in the spirit of the Easter cel­e­bra­tions.

Ushafa urged them to use the oc­ca­sion for sober re­flec­tion and im­bibe the spirit of for­give­ness, sac­ri­fice and tol­er­ant as ex­em­pli­fied by the Je­sus Christ.

While call­ing on the res­i­dents of the area to be watch­ful and be se­cu­rity con­scious dur­ing and af­ter the cel­e­bra­tion, the chair­man cau­tioned them against ex­ces­sive cel­e­bra­tions.

He called on the se­cu­rity agents in the area to con­tinue to beef up se­cu­rity in all the nooks and cran­nies of the area coun­cil dur­ing and af­ter the cel­e­bra­tion and wished the Chris­tians hitch-free cel­e­bra­tions.

Mean­while, the chair­man has com­mis­er­ated with the vic­tims of Mon­day bomb blast at Nyanya, a sub­urb of Abuja, de­scrib­ing the in­ci­dent as very un­for­tu­nate.

Ushafa prayed for the re­pose of those that lost their lives in the in­ci­dent and the quick re­cov­ery of the in­jured ones.
