President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Ayo Oritsejafor, has advised that sacrifice, love and humility must be practiced by everyone this Easter season.
He made this clear in a statement on Friday, where he emphasized the need for Nigerians to learn to sacrifice for their fellow beings, just as Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice for mankind on Good Friday.
While also imploring Nigerians to shun violence and reject division in the country, the CAN president, stated, “This is a time when Christians in parts of the country are plagued by insurgency; I call for steadfastness and unwavering faith in God, the maker of all things. This should be the watch word for all Christians in this season of sacrifice and forgiveness. As greed, hatred and wickedness continue to dominate the affairs of some in our midst, goodwill ultimately prevails over evil,” he said in the statement, noting also that Nigerians must always be guided by the message of the Cross because it must be put into practice in all its ramifications.”
