Atiku at Easter preaches sacrifice and love

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love and sacrifice as they celebrate Easter.

In an Easter goodwill message issued by his Media Office in Abuja Atiku enjoined Christians and indeed all Nigerians to internalize the spiritual gains and benefits of the season for an improved society.

He admonished Christians to emulate Jesus Christ by his exemplary unconditional love and sacrifice to the people.

According to him, this is the only path to enthroning a Nigeria of equal rights, peace and justice.

“We need to promote love for another, be our brothers and sisters keepers and above all make sacrifice an integral part of our existence. That is the only way the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross will make meaning in our own daily lives and the life of our nation,” Atiku said.

The former Vice President reiterated that nation building calls for huge sacrifice and fellow-feeling both from the leaders and the led.

“Nigeria will never realize its manifest destiny as a great nation capable of playing leading role in world until we begin to care for one another and this will translate to immense love for our country,” he said.
