The president elect Senator Bola Tinubu has called on Nigerian citizens to do away with religious and ethnic rivalries, for the country to be prosperous.

Tinubu made this known in his Easter message to Christian faithfuls on Saturday April 8.

He called on the country’s citizens to “love our neighbour, regardless of tongue, faith and tribe”.

The Informant247 recalls that the 2023 general elections was ethnically charged and characterised by divisive comments from members of different political platforms on social media.

Tinubu implored the county’s citizens to “recommit ourselves to edifying and patriotic pursuits in the interest of our nation”.

“I send my best wishes to Christians in Nigeria and all over the world who are celebrating Easter this Sunday. As we all enjoy the well-deserved break, I urge every Nigerian to reflect on the priceless sacrifice and limitless love of God for mankind.”

“As we celebrate, let us also remember our obligation, as God’s children, to love our neighbour, regardless of tongue, faith and tribe.

“For Christians everywhere, this celebration is in commemoration of Jesus Christ’s life of service and his supreme sacrifice for the salvation of mankind.

”And as we observe Easter this year, let us all imbibe the essential message of Christ’s ministry and truly begin to love our fellow Nigerians as we love ourselves.

“We will make faster progress towards the achievement of the peaceful, united, strong, progressive and prosperous country we all desire if we eschew divisive, parochial, ethnic and religious sentiments and rivalries, and begin to live more harmoniously with our compatriots.

“Easter is about Renewed Hope and Redemption. It symbolizes the triumph of hope over despair, love over hate and condemnation, and optimism over cynicism. Let us embrace this spirit and recommit ourselves to edifying and patriotic pursuits in the interest of our nation.”
