Easter: Nigeria under siege, needs prayer – Secondus

The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has urged Christians to use this period of Easter to intensify their prayers for Nigeria because the country is under siege.

Secondus in an Easter message signed by his media Adviser, Ike Abonyi Friday, said Nigerians should not allow the prevailing hardship in the country and the unjust outcome of 2019 election affect their spirit of love, brotherliness and peaceful co-existence.

The statement reads in parts : “The country is clearly under siege from all corners and said that the period of Easter  provides good opportunity for Nigerians to pray more to God to send succor to alleviate their sufferings.

“He urged Nigerians to use this year’s Easter festivities to engender the spirit of oneness and also re-dedicate themselves to the virtues of love, patriotism and unity for the desired national development.

“We must allow the spirit of this season embedded in love, charity and forgiveness to control our thoughts and actions as we seek God’s face for our country

“Nigerians Christians must allow the solemnness of the last 40 days of fasting and prayers to influence their thoughts and actions in relating with one another.

“According Prince Secondus, the Lenten period that just ended offered incalculable lessons in love, humility and forgiveness which should guide our way of living irrespective of religion, ethnic and political differences and help in ushering in a new and adorable era where bitterness and hatred are absent.”

The PDP Chairman admonished Nigerians to use this period to think deeply at the state of the nation with a view to finding a lasting solution to the country’s challenges.
