During our Easter celebrations, Muhammadu Buhari, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has urged the citizens to pray for peace and security to return to troubled parts of the country.
He acknowledged that the nation is in distress after recent terrible killings, kidnappings and violence and has begged Nigerians to remain united and ensure these evils are defeated.
His words, “This administration will do all it takes to adequately equip and motivate our armed forces and other law enforcement agencies to enable them successfully confront these security challenges.
“We will not allow merchants of evil and death to overwhelm the nation. Under my watch, the nation will triumph over them – terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and the like.
“On this holy occasion, I enjoin all Nigerians to intensify prayers for peace and security to return to all parts of the country.
“I also urge you not to lose hope of a brighter and greater future for the country when we do the right things in love.
“Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning,”
“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 our communal tendencies and chords of unity.”
