Must read

A chieftain of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has enjoined Christians to use the period of Easter to pray for the country to overcome the current challenges.

Oguntoyinbo who was the gubernatorial candidate of NNPP in Ogun State in the 2023 general elections made this declaration via a statement made available to journalists on Sunday.

He acknowledged the fact that Nigeria as a country is facing with the issues of insecurity and poverty, maintaining that the problems do not only affect the economy and the progress of the nation but threaten its existence.

He then called on the Christians to use the occasion to pray for peace and security during the Easter celebration.

“I urge all Nigerians to pray for peace and security amidst seemingly intractable insecurity around Nigeria and an end to all kind of criminal activities in the land.

“We should also not forget the present economic hardship facing the Nigeria and her citizens.

“Easter which is the season of the remembrance of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ marks the trial, sacrifice, victory and completion of the divine mandate of the author of the Christian faith.

“Our nation is faced with rampant insecurity from Insurgents, bandits’ attacks, kidnapping, herders/farmers clashes that are not only affecting the economy and the progress of the nation but threatening its existence. I call on all to pray for peace and security during the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ”.
