A group under the auspices of Northern Christian Youth Professionals has urged Christians to imbibe the spirit of Easter and distance themselves from anti-May 29th Handover elements. The chairman of the group, Isaac Abrak, stated this in a statement made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
The group extends warm wishes to all Nigerians on the occasion of the Easter celebration. As they celebrate this season of love, renewal, and hope, they should reflect on the virtues of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross and emulate them in their daily lives.
“We must also use this opportunity to reflect on the state of our nation and the challenges we face.
“In light of the Presidential election, we congratulate His Excellency Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory.
“We believe that under his leadership, Nigeria can make significant progress in improving our economy and security. We are aware that not all Nigerians voted for President-elect HE Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but we urge those who did not vote for him to put aside their differences and support him in his efforts to improve the lives of all Nigerians.
“He will now be responsible for the well-being of all citizens, and it is important that we all work together towards a better Nigeria. As a Christian organization, we firmly believe in the power of prayer and the importance of leadership that upholds Christian values.
“We urge all Nigerians, irrespective of religious beliefs, to support President-elect HE Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu in his efforts to improve the lives of Nigerians. However, we note with concern the recent calls by some individuals and groups to shelve the handover of power to President-elect HE Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We strongly condemn such calls as they are enemies of democracy, peaceful coexistence, and a united Nigeria. Nigerians have spoken through the ballot, and it is important that we respect the will of the people.
“We call on all Nigerians to distance themselves from any person or group that calls for the subversion of the will of the people. We must all work together to tackle the various challenges facing our nation, including insecurity, economic hardship, and political unrest.
“We urge all Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of Easter, which is that of selflessness, compassion, and love, and to work towards promoting peace, unity, and progress in our beloved country.
“We are confident that under the leadership of President-elect HE Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Nigeria will move towards a better and brighter future. We call on all Nigerians to join hands with him and work towards the progress and development of our great nation.”
