President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki has admonished Christians to emulate Jesus Christ.
The call was part of his Easter messages on Thursday to Christians and Nigerians in general.
Saraki called on Nigerians to work towards emulating the virtues of Jesus Christ.
His message was signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja.
The lawmaker noted that Nigerians must remain constant in their efforts to promote unity across all lines.
Saraki stated, “This weekend, we join our Christian brothers and sisters in Nigeria and across the world to celebrate the Easter festivities.
“This commemoration is a time for deep reflection as it marks the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and his victory over death.
“It is a time to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need.
“It is also a time for all of us–regardless of faith, or ethnicity–to come together to pray for the peace of our nation.”
