Tunji-Ojo challenged Christians and all Nigerians to emulate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and love in dying for humanity’s redemption.

The statement stated in part, “Easter, in addition to its religious significance, promotes values such as love, forgiveness, and compassion, all of which are necessary for social cohesion and harmony.”

The minister called on Christians to imbibe these virtues, as they can positively impact Nigeria’s socio-economic development by fostering unity, reducing conflicts, and encouraging cooperation among Nigerians.
