Orji Kalu preaches peace, unity at Easter



Spread the love

The Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Kalu, has urged Nigerians to use the Easter season for sober reflection as individuals and as a nation.

Kalu, in his Easter message on Friday in Abuja, urged Christian faithfuls to uphold lessons of the holy Bible.

According to him, the exemplary life of Jesus Christ must be emulated by Christians in order to build a decent society.

Describing Easter as a special celebration in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Kalu called on Christians to pray for the nation and leaders at all levels.

He added that the acts of forgiveness and love must be demonstrated among Nigerians regardless of religious differences.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the former Governor of Abia urged spiritual leaders to use their platforms to advocate peace and unity, adding that the role of religious leaders cannot be undermined in nation building.

While noting that leaders must be held accountable for their deeds, Kalu cautioned politicians against heating the polity ahead of the 2023 general elections.

“I congratulate Nigerians on yet another Easter celebration.

“This is a season to demonstrate love, peace, togetherness, unity and piety.

“We must reflect our lives as individuals and as a people.

“The teachings of the holy bible must be demonstrated in our daily lives.

“The Christian community should use the Easter season to offer prayers for the country.

“The future is bright if Nigerians embrace good deeds as exemplified by Jesus Christ,” Kalu said.
