CAN President Urges Nigerians To Love And Forgive One Another
THE President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has called on Nigerians to live in peace, unity and to ensure that stability is restored permanently in the country.
He noted that the need for peace as demonstrated by President, Goodluck Jonathan in the recently held presidential elections should be the point of reference for all political leaders in the forthcoming governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections, saying there is nothing greater than peace and love as enunciated by God and demonstrated by President Goodluck Jonathan.
In his Easter massage, yesterday, in Abuja, the CAN President urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love and forgiveness as exemplified by Jesus Christ through his death on the cross.
“Easter stands for the suffering, power over death and grace through the blood of Jesus shared on the Cross of Calvary, so we need to emulate the risen Jesus, who turns death into life, to change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace. ” Christ is our peace and through him we implore peace for all Nigerians. I also pray for the incoming administration led by Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari,” he added.
