The Archbishop of Anglican Arch-Diocese of Enugu State, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has enjoined Nigerians to show love and forgiveness in order to build a peaceful, progressive and prosperous nation.
Chukwuma said this in a homily at the Chapel of Light Church, Enugu, during a Special Easter Holy Communion Service on Sunday.
He noted that Nigerians would easily overcome the present hardship when they carried out their jobs and sell their wares with love and the fear of God.
“The desire for sin, greed, revenge and hate should be jettisoned.
“What we need now is to queue behind the government and see how we can join it to move the country forward and overcome the temporary hardship we find ourselves.
“Easter, which is the resurrection of Christ, has come to resurrect Nigeria and Nigerians from the clutches of poverty, lack and economic stagnation among our people.
“As we have prayed during the Lenten season, everything that brings backwardness and hardship to Nigeria as a country would be rolled away by the power of the Most High’’, he said.
The cleric also called on political office holders to show commitment to their job; while putting the country first in all their decisions.
Chukwuma, however, prayed for God’s wisdom and guidance for President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; the Senate, House of Representatives, Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi among others.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the service was attended by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and top political office holders in Enugu State.
