Let’s Stand Together Against Forces Seeking To Divide Us, Atiku Pleads To Nigerians

Atiku-AbubakarFormer Nigeria Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has said that the current security challenges in Nigeria, though sad, but provide an opportunity for Nigerians to come out as one people and one nation, to stand together against any persons or forces trying to divide them.
In his message today to Christians at Easter and Nigerians, Atiku advised Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love and sacrifice as they celebrate Easter.
He asked the citizens to watch out for the wellbeing of one another and to internalize the spiritual gains and benefits of the season for an improved society.
According to him, this is the only path to enthroning a Nigeria where the basic human rights of the rich and poor are respected and upheld, and where citizens can dwell in peace and safety.
“We need to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers and, above all, make sacrifice an integral part of our existence. That is the only way the sacrifice and life’s lessons of Jesus Christ will make meaning in our own daily lives and the life of our nation,” Atiku said.
The message of Easter, he explained, is love. Unconditional love for each other and “not as people from different tribes or places of birth, not as Christians or Muslims, but as members of a commonwealth of humanity. We must love each other as Nigerians first.”
The former Vice President also advised Nigerians to contribute their quota to national security, by reporting any suspicious activity to the police.
“Until we begin to care for one another and to realize that every single human life is precious in the eye of God, Nigeria will never actualise its destiny as a great nation capable of playing a leading role in the world.”
