Senator Bola Tinubu on Friday urged Nigerians to remember the millions of people who have been displaced by violent battles and attacks in Nigeria.
Tinubu said this while urging Christians across Nigeria and the world at large to imbibe Christ’s life of service, compassion and sacrifice as they mark Good Friday ahead of the Easter celebrations.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential hopeful made the call in a statement in Lagos.
The former Governor of Lagos State said, “This year has brought together the sacred days of two of the great Abrahamic religions and as Christians commemorate the sacrificial death of Christ, Muslims observe the Holy Month of Ramadan.
“In this, we are reminded that we Nigerians may be of different religions, yet we are of one family. We serve but one God.
“As we celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice this day, let us remember the millions of people who have been displaced by violent conflict and attack in our own nation.”
On Good Friday, Tinubu also advised Nigerians to remember their sacred duty to uphold the dignity of every human being and allow all who suffer to be close to their hearts and become their brothers and sisters.
