Kaduna – The Christian Association (CAN), Northern chapter on Saturday appealed to Nigerians not to lose faith in the country.
The Public Relations Officer of CAN, Rev. John Hayab made the appeal in a statement in Kaduna.
Hayab said that in spite of the pains and failures being experienced in some sectors, there were still many reasons to celebrate and be grateful.
“Our children must be made to see hope for a brighter future, our leaders and elders must strive to keep a good legacy.
“We should all work to ensure a peaceful society.
“Those who specialise in speaking evil and instigating others against their fellow citizens should have a rethink.
“Our government should learn to listen to the advice of citizens while the citizens should be patient with government and render honest support.
“We all should be patriotic and give our honest contributions to making this nation greater than what and where we are now,” he said.
Hayab said that the country had mourned and cried enough and called on the citizens to always look for reasons to celebrate the country’s greatness rather than being negative all the time.
“God bless our great country Nigeria and we wish all a happy 57th independence anniversary,’’ the clergy said.
