In Kaduna, El-Rufai preaches peace, harmony at Easter


Governor Nasir El-Rufai has appealed to all citizens of Kaduna state to embrace their common humanity and uphold their obligations for peace and harmony in their various communities.

Speaking in an Easter message to Christian faithful in Kaduna state on Saturday, the governor advised citizens to isolate and expose the criminals in their midst.

‘’While we all do our utmost to ensure that our diverse communities live in peace and resolve differences peacefully.

“There is difference between the Easter celebrations in 2020 and 2021. This year’s celebrations are taking place in a different atmosphere from those of 2020 when a significant part of Lent and Easter itself were held under conditions of strict lockdown and restrictions on the movement of persons.

‘’Amidst the uncertainties and disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, many citizens made sacrifices to comply with the preventive public health measures that were imposed to manage the situation. 

“We acknowledge these sacrifices and commend the churches for taking steps to ensure that congregational worship is done in safe conditions.

“While the pandemic persists, we can say that we are in a much better place than in 2020, thanks to the benevolence of Almighty God who has bestowed His grace on the efforts of mere mortals. 

“We have a duty to continue our compliance with the preventive protocols against Covid-19 as we continue to safely pursue livelihoods and move forward with personal responsibility,’’ he said.
