Christians to use the Easter celebration to pray for the end of the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world.
He made the assertion in his Easter massage, yesterday in Kaduna.
Bishop Yahaya expressed optimism that the country would overcome the turbulent period.

Timothy further explained: “Easter is a season that signifies the victory for mankind, and we must humble ourselves before God, just as the Coronavirus has humbled all aspects of human endeavours” He said.
