He urged Christians to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love and patience which were attributes of Jesus Christ as exemplified by his ministry on earth.

He called on Christians to use the occasion to pray for Nigeria especially the insecurity in parts of the country.
