As Nigeria and the rest of the world celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ today, Turning Point Nigeria have called for peace, Justice, Equity, tolerance and forgiveness, among other things.
Mr Oswald C Okebata the president of Turning Point Nigeria congratulated the Christian community in Nigeria on the Easter celebration, and added that the celebrations are a worthy finale to the period of fasting, prayer and self-denial which they had gone through in the past 40 days of Lent.
In a press statement released by himself TPN President urged the Christian faithful and Nigerians of other faiths to see the sacrifice and deprivation of the period preceding Easter as similar to the sacrifice and perseverance which the present economic difficulties has imposed on all Nigerians and which would finally terminate with celebration and merry-making when the difficult period is over.
Mr Okebata advised all Nigerians to learn from the pain, joy, love and caring which characterize the period of Lent and the Easter celebration, and allow these virtues to continuously guide us as a people in our individual and community relationships. He said a national attitude built on selflessness and sacrifice would go a long way in laying the foundation of true patriotism and greatness of the nation.
He urged those in positions of authority to endeavour to encourage the citizens to make sacrifice and show love especially when the country is facing challenges by making their own lives, in public and private, something transparent, and worthy of emulation. He prayed for peace and prosperity for all Nigerians and urged them to enjoy a stress-free and violence-free celebration.
