Easter: Emir Urges Unity In Fight Against Vices

The Emir of Kanam, Alhaji Babangida Mu’azu, has
enjoined both Christians and Muslim to unite in the
fight against societal vices such as insurgency,
drug abuse and corruption. He gave the advice on Friday in an Easter message
delivered in Dengi, Kanam Local Government of
Plateau. “The world is celebrating the love Jesus Christ
demonstrated unto mankind by dying for all;
Nigerians should love one another and find a
common goal in fighting those out to harm or
divide us. “That common goal should be our collective
resolve to live as one indivisible nation, no matter
what we are passing through as a nation. “We should not allow selfishness, greed or any
perceived differences to stand in our way,” he
said. He described Easter as a period of sober reflection
not only to the Christians, but to Muslims, toward
maintaining peace and unity for the survival and
progress of mankind, particularly in Nigeria. On the outbreak of Cerebrospinal Meningitis in
some part of the country, the Emir called for
stringent steps to check its spread and described
the heavy losses as “unfortunate, embarrassing
and sad”. “Now that the scourge has moved from Type A to
Type B and C, we have to collectively rise up to
arrest its spread to curtail its devastating effects on
the lives of Nigerians. “The authorities concerned should take the fight
serious and ensure that the wanton loss of lives is
curtailed,” the Emir advised. The paramount ruler advised Nigerians to ensure
that their abodes are well ventilated, urging that
clean environments must be maintained to avoid
the spread of the disease. While wishing all Christians and Nigerians a
peaceful and happy Easter Celebration, he
appealed to Nigerians to be law abiding and
continue to pray for the growth and development
of the country.
