“This year’s Easter is coming at a time the country is undergoing all sorts of crisis from the economy to security issues. At no time do we need prayers and selflessness more than now. Let me call on all Christians to live out those virtues both at home and the workplace.

“Let me once again assure the state of my continued commitment to a better life, especially in the provision of infrastructure and qualitative education. Security agencies are on top the challenge of safeguarding life and properties during the festive seasons and we would give them all the support needed to have a hitch free celebration” Kefas said.
