The cleric equally enjoined people to pray for the leaders to direct the affairs of the country well in the interest of the masses.
He averred that the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ should be seen as a reflective period on the significance of his sacrifice to the world.
Calling on everyone to collectively imbibe the spirit of love, unity and peace, he expressed optimism that Nigeria will overcome all her challenges.
The Archbishop who congratulated Christians on the celebration, posited that they should reflect on the virtues of Jesus Christ towards promoting and strengthening the foundation of love, peace and harmony.
