Wife of the Kaduna State Governor, Hajiya Fatima Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has felicitated with all Christians in Nigeria, and Kaduna State in particular, as this year’s Easter is celebrated across the world.

In a goodwill message issued to Peoples Daily and signed by Press Secretary to the Governor’s wife, Aisha Sani Junaid, Hajiya Yero, said while it is important to celebrate and rejoice with family, friends and the community, the deep spiritual essence should not be lost on all faithful.

The governor’s wife said the season calls for sober reflection especially on the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for the sins of mankind, she therefore urged Christians in the state to reflect and emulate the virtues of Jesus Christ which symbolizes sacrifice, tolerance, peace, love and forgiveness as no nation can progress without these qualities.

She further called on all Nigerians to use the Easter season to promote good neighbourliness and peaceful coexistence irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliation, saying “it is time to rededicate our lives to God by turning to Him in prayers so as to overcome present challenges and build a secure, peaceful, united, progressive and prosperous nation of our dream”.
