APC, ACF urge leaders to fight injustices, be brothers’ keepers
The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has called on political leaders in the country to promote national unity by rededicating themselves to the fight against injustice, corruption and other social vices that have retarded the country’s development.
In an Easter message by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Muhammad Ibrahim, the group said: “The period also gives Christians the opportunity to reflect on the exemplary life and good teachings of Jesus Christ, especially his tolerance, forgiveness and self sacrifice.
“ACF wishes Nigerians, especially Christians happy celebration, it urges all Nigerians no matter their status, to practice the virtue of tolerance, forgiveness, self-sacrifice, good neighborliness to one another and also continue to pray for peace and harmony,” ACF stated.
It added: “ACF also calls upon our leaders at all levels to demonstrate love, peaceful coexistence and commitment to the unity of Nigeria, free of injustice, corruption and other vices that have negatively affected our development.”
The All Progressives Congress (APC), which also wished Nigerians a joyous Easter, remind them to be selfless as Jesus Christ was during his time on earth.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said: “As the country gradually slides out of economic recession, the APC assures Nigerians of government’s determination to restore the economy on the path of growth.”
Meanwhile, the Anglican Bishop of Okigwe South, Most Rev. David Onuoha, has urged political leaders in the country to follow Christ’s examples and show honest and sacrificial love to Nigerians at this critical stage of our national life.
In his Easter message made available to The Guardian, Onuoha insisted that all illegally acquired public funds must be returned, while there must be accountability in governance, and the deliberate initiation of policies that would improve the lot of the poor.
