Written by News Room on April 17, 2022
The Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association, SKCLA, has tasked Christians to embrace the spirit of sacrifice, love, peace and tolerance as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
The Chairman of the Association, Apostle Dr Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, who gave the challenge in an Easter Message to felicitate with Christians community as they celebrate Easter, which signifies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, also urged Christians to use the lessons learnt during the fasting season in praying for an end to needless attacks and kidnappings for ransom, as well as the restoration of peace in the land.
He pointed out that, as instructed by God in 2 Chronicles 7:14, there is need for people to turn back to God by deliberately confessing their sins, so as to escape from the wrath and punishment of God.
The SKCLA Chairman, while praying to God to intervene and restore lasting peace to Southern Kaduna and by extension, Kaduna State, the Religious Leader called on the government to adopt a more proactive way of containing the activities of Terrorists by deploying technological ways to identifying where these attackers hibernate after unleashing attacks on armless and innocent people.
He admonished the people in Southern Kaduna to continue to be vigilant by reporting suspicious people to the authorities and not to lose sleep in protecting their lives, properties and land from the aggressors.
The statement also commended the Federal Government over the amnesty granted some prisoners including former governors Jolly Nyame and Joshua Dariye of Taraba and Plateau States respectively.
He however, appealed to the Muslim community who are also observing the Holy month of Ramadan, to use the period to pray for Leaders in the country, so that God will give them the wisdom to have the interest of the masses at heart.
