Barau Preaches Unity, Tolerance, Perseverance At Easter

As Christians all over the world celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter, the Deputy Senate President, Senator Barau Jibrin, has rejoiced with faithful across the country.

The Federal Government had declared Friday, March 29, and Monday, April 1, 2024, as public holidays for the celebration of Good Friday and Easter Monday, respectively.

Senator Barau, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ismail Mudashir, congratulated Christians for the successful completion of the Lenten season, a period of 40 days of fasting and prayer that culminated in the Easter celebration.

 

He enjoined Christian faithful to imbibe the teachings of Jesus Christ and the lessons of Easter which emphasise peace, love, perseverance and forgiveness.

 

He called on all Nigerians to reflect on the state of the nation and rededicate themselves in prayers and sacrifice, even as he noted that the country’s challenges were surmountable if the people unite, love one another and pray for the country and its leadership to move the nation forward.

 

“I congratulate the entire Christian faithful on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration. I equally congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the successful completion of the Lenten season, a period of 40 days of fasting and prayers,” he said.

 

He prayed for peace and prosperity for all Nigerians and urged them to enjoy a stress-free and violence-free celebration.
