Reflect on lessons of Easter for peace, justice, Ortom begs leaders
Governor Samuel Ortom has exhorted Nigerians not to lose the essence of Easter, which signifies the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for the redemption of mankind.
He urged Nigerian leaders to reflect on the sacrifices and lessons of the Easter and use the opportunity to redress the inherent injustice in the land to engender peace and unity.
In his Easter message, yesterday, in Makurdi, the governor said the challenges of an unfavourable economy, insecurity and growing dissent among the various ethnic nationalities in the country could be reversed, if justice becomes the hallmark of leadership in the country.
Ortom advised that deliberate efforts should be made to give every part of the country a sense of belonging, and cautioned against the resort to violence, by aggrieved persons, to redress perceived injuries or injustices.
