Easter: Lawmaker tasks FCT residents on peaceful coexistence

By Gami Tadanyigbe

MIcah Jiba, Member, House of Representative, AMAC/Bwari Federal Constituency, has appealed to residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to live peacefully to attract much-needed infrastructural development in the area.

Jiba, who made the call in his Easter message, said that the significance of the season was for every Christian to show an exemplary life of Jesus.

He added that divine evidence had shown that when people turn to God in true supplication, in times of distress, agony, sickness and disappointment, the Almighty God in turn answered prayers.

“It is only in a peaceful and conducive environment that business, government activities and the desired infrastructural development can be achieved.

“I urge you to use this Easter celebration to reflect on the significance of the FCT as the Center of Unity of our great country.

“This is the season to show true neighbourliness and reach out to the needy and the less privileged, who have been impacted negatively by COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.

He advised residents to follow all the necessary COVID-19 protocols of constant hand washing, use of alcohol based sanitiser, and observing social distancing.

He described Easter as one of the holiest celebrations for Christians that enabled them to reflect on the way of life of Jesus Christ while on earth to save mankind.

“This is one time where prevention is most certainly better than cure and you must therefore, be disciplined and maintain personal hygiene by observing all the guidelines.

He wished the residents of FCT a happy Easter celebration and encouraged them to stay safe throughout the festivity.(NAN)
