Easter: Pray for Nigeria, leaders, Speaker Abbas urges Christians


The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, Ph.D, has felicitated Christians as they celebrate Easter to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Speaker Abbas, in his Easter message, urged Christians and Nigerians in general to be selfless and sacrifice for one another, as exemplified by Jesus Christ.



The Speaker noted that it is only when the leaders and the followers alike shun self gratification and collectively work toward a common goal that the nation would be stronger and better, and the world would also a better place.

He, therefore, called for prayers for Nigeria to overcome her current socio-economic and security challenges, stating that Easter is one of the best seasons to do so as patriotic citizens.

Speaker Abbas urged Nigerians to emulate the life of Jesus Christ and imbibe his teachings, including obedience to law and authorities, charity, and holiness.

He said it is in this spirit that Nigerians should pray for their leaders, starting with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his administration, as well as others in the other arms and tiers of the government.

The Speaker wished Christians a happy Easter celebration.
