The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has urged Christians to use the Easter period to pray for the peace and unity of Nigeria.
Gidado Siddiki, the South East Zonal Chairman of MACBAN, urged Christians to remain resolute in their abiding faith and hope for a better country.
In a statement he signed and issued on Sunday in Enugu, the MACBAN Chairman described the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the pillar of the Christian faith and the celebration.
“As Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ today, I urge them to reflect on the lessons they learnt during the Lenten period.
“Let us love one another and see ourselves as one indivisible entity in spite of our differences,” Sidikki said.
He said that Nigerians were a people with common destiny and heritage in spite of differences in religion, tongue and political ideology.
The MACBAN zonal chairman said that with prayers and faith in God, the country will prosper and overcome all the challenges that threaten its unity.
