In­se­cu­rity: Yero urges Chris­tians to pray

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Chris­tiana T. Alabi & Dick­son S. Adama, Kaduna

Kaduna State Gover­nor Mukhtar Ra­malan Yero has called on Chris­tians to pray fer­vently for Nigeria, as only prayer can deliver the na­tion from its cur­rent chal­lenges.

Speak­ing yes­ter­day dur­ing the Easter Rally 2014 or­gan­ised by Chris­tian As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (CAN) at Catholic So­cial Cen­ter in Kaduna, Yero, who was rep­re­sented by the head of ser­vice, Mr. Ak­ila Bung­won, said “Since Christ love us, we too should show love to oth­ers just as Easter demon­strates sac­ri­fice of some­one who sac­ri­fice his life to save us and give vic­tory of good over evil.”

He en­joined Chris­tians to carry the mes­sage of love and peace to ev­ery­one around them.

Also in an in­ter­view, the spe­cial Ad­viser to Kaduna State Gover­nor on Chris­tian mat­ters, Rev­erend Joseph Hayab, said Easter comes with the spirit of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion among broth­ers, friends and neigh­bours.

“One of the great­est chal­lenges fac­ing our com­mu­nity to­day is that people hardly make sac­ri­fice for the com­mon good of our na­tion, home and fam­ily,” he said.
