This is contained in a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on the Easter celebration.
”This year’s Easter celebrations have coincided with an ongoing political transition that has so far been widely adjudged a success, and one that also paves the way for us to have a national rebirth.
“In doing this, we must show love and eschew bitterness. We must put the acrimony of the long drawn electioneering campaign behind us.
”Just like Jesus Christ remains a shining light in a world of gloom, let us be beacons of faith, hope and love as we, irrespective of our political leaning, embark on the onerous task of making our nation great again,” it said.
The party urged Nigerians to come together, irrespective of the fault lines separating them, for a
national rebirth, in the spirit of Easter which is being celebrated around the world.
”At the core of Easter, which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, are the messages of renewal and rebirth, sacrifice, forgiveness and love.
“ In the culmination of his life of selfless sacrifice, Jesus Christ gave his life for others to live.
“Let us emulate him, in our private and public lives, by exhibiting those virtues for which he lived,’’ the statement said.
The APC wished all Christians a Happy Easter. (NAN)
