Imoke implores Christians to pray for peace

Christians have  been implored to use the exemplary opportunity of Easter to pray for peace and unity to prevail in Nigeria and for God to spare the country of endless waste of lives through sectarian crisis, communal wars and cult related violence.

Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State made the call in his Easter message to Cross Riverians, saying that they should pray for the consolation of those who have lost dear ones as well as the repose of the souls of the departed.

Imoke remarked that more than the story of salvation for mankind, of the times, death and resurrection of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, this period provides people the challenge of defining their individual mission in life.
According to him, “Easter also reminds us that solidarity with one another, love, care and compassion are really important values that need to be reflected in our society.”
