Yahaya Bello, who also congratulated the Christian faithful on the successful completion of the Lenten season, urged them to use the season to pray for the peace of the country and wisdom for leaders.
The governor stated that, “just as the death, burial and resurrection of Christ signify hope for mankind, there must be a rekindling of hope for our nation in this season of great challenges. “I therefore urge Christians to reflect on critical issues affecting the nation and to continue seeking the face of God for the nation. “So that security, unity and peace will prevail in the overall national interest, Bello stated.”
He assured Christian faithful of government commitment to a joyous celebration free of all hitches. He added that security operatives and other collaborating agencies are working round-the-clock to checkmate crime and secure the lives and properties of the residents.
