From Sola Ojo, Kaduna
In the letter and spirit of the Easter season, the Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association (SKCLA) on Saturday urged privileged faithful to bless their less privileged neighbours.
The association also congratulated the Muslim ummah on their fast, urging them to continue to pray for a more peaceful future together.
Chairman of the Association, Apostle Dr. Emmanuel Nuhu Kure made the call in an Easter message in Kafanchan, Jema’a local government area of the State at the weekend.
Having congratulated Christians for successfully witnessing the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, he reminded them that Easter is a time for Christians around the world to rejoice in the victory of life over death and to reflect on the teachings of love, peace, and forgiveness that Jesus exemplified.
To him, “this year’s Easter celebration holds a special significance, especially considering the challenging times we have faced as a community.
“However, as people of faith, we draw strength and hope from the message of Easter, which reminds us that even in the darkest times, there is always light and that through resilience and unity, we can overcome any challenge.
“We should not forget the essence of Easter which is to promote harmony, tolerance, and love amongst all individuals and communities in Southern Kaduna”, he said.
Kure used the occasion to commend the government, security agencies, and all relevant stakeholders for their efforts in ensuring a peaceful and secure environment for Easter celebrations in southern Kaduna and the state as a whole.
Kure who is also the Vision Pioneer, Throne Room Trust Ministry Kafanchan, therefore encouraged all Christians to “remember the less fortunate in our midst during this Easter period.
“Let us extend a helping hand to those in need, offering support and kindness to uplift one another and. By doing so, we demonstrate the true Christian spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive and compassionate society”, he added.
