SPECIAL EASTER MESSAGE: TIME TO HEAL POLITICAL WOUNDS
I warmly congratulate all Nigerians, especially our Christian brothers and sisters on the sober but joyous occasion of Easter.
This is a very important and hugely significant event. It is a remembrance and celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the pillar on which the Christian faith stands. Jesus Christ gave his life as a sacrifice for the remission of sins. His sacrifice signifies undiluted love, selflessness, forgiveness and compassion.
The occasion of Easter offers us an opportunity to reflect on the challenges facing our dear country. Elections are over and we must face governance squarely. If we close ranks and cooperate fully with relevant authorities our country’s challenges would be addressed frontally.
Easter is also a time to renew our commitment to the search for peace and to show genuine love and compassion to our fellow countrymen and women. Regardless of our religious persuasions and ethnic affiliations, we are one people. Our diversity is our strength. We must harness our strengths to make our country great.
I urge Nigerians to also use this Easter season to mend political fences. The last elections was hard fought and pitched family members, friends, associates and Nigerians generally against each other. But there is always a time to sheathe the political sword. Let the spirit of Easter touch the nation and bring forgiveness, love and peace.
May this Easter bring the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone abundance of peace, joy and happiness. Be rest assured of my total commitment to the repositioning and progress of our Senatorial District.
Once again, happy Easter to all Nigerians. Remain blessed
Mal. Uba Sani, Senator-Elect (Kaduna Central)
