Easter: Prayers for Peace and Security during the celebration
AS Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, Senator Solomon Adeola (Lagos West), has called on all Nigerians to pray for peace and security amid serious insecurity around Nigeria.
Adeola appealed to all to practice the Christian virtues of sacrifice, patience, love and abiding faith for a better tomorrow as exemplified in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
He said it is not possible to develop any society where love, sacrifices for one another, patience and hope for a better future are lacking.
“Our nation is faced with rampant insecurity from Boko Haram insurgents, bandit attacks, kidnapping, herders/farmers clashes that are not only hampering the progress of the nation but threatening its existence.

He said the insecurity in Nigeria would soon be a thing of the past and that Nigeria would surely be victorious.
