The Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) has called on Christian faithful to use the opportunity of Easter celebrations to pray for the quick resolution of the security challenges confronting the nation.
Chairman of the forum and governor of Niger State, Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu on Saturday in Minna called on Nigerians to be mindful of the need to continue to work for peace which underscores the essence of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday.
In a statement signed by governor Aliyu’s Chief Press Secretary, Danladi Ndayebo, the forum said terrorism is alien to our culture and urged all Nigerians to work together to put an end to the senseless killing of defenseless citizens.
The forum also urged Christians to imbibe the ideals of perseverance, sacrifice and commitment to the will of God which characterised the Lenten season.
The statement emphasized the need for Nigerians to support their leaders at all levels for the benefit of all.
