ABUJA— PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, lamented the unfortunate killings, kidnapping and violence, which have characterised the recent tragic incidents in some states of the federation saying “This should not be.”
Nigerians, President Buhari called for cordiality and togetherness among the citizens.
The message reads: “We must reinforce the bond of brotherhood and good neighbourliness that citizens of a cohesive country must share. We must not allow the few bad elements in our communities to put asunder in our communal tendencies and chords of unity.
“I rejoice with all Nigerians, especially our Christian brethren on the glorious occasion of the celebration of Easter 2019.
“Easter is the most important feast in the Christian calendar and represents God’s redemptive mission over humanity, the triumph of light over darkness, hope over despair and good over evil.
“The Christian festival commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ is also a time to emulate the virtues of love, sacrifice, forgiveness, humility, courage and endurance, which Christ embodied and remarkably demonstrated during His earthly ministry.
“Let us use this auspicious season to show love to our neighbours, and cater to the needs of the less-privileged in our midst.
“Our nation is currently gripped with gloom over unfortunate killings, kidnappings and violence, as seen in the recent tragic incidents in some states of the federation.
“This should not be. We must reinforce the bond of brotherhood and good neighbourliness that citizens of a cohesive country must share. We must not allow the few bad elements in our communities to put asunder in our communal tendencies and chords of unity.
