Eminent businessman and former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu, has called on Nigerians to seize the Easter period to pray for leaders at all levels of government.
According to the former governor, despite economic challenges facing the country, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government is on track in reshaping the economy through the implementation of wealth and employment-creation initiatives. In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Kunle Oyewumi, Kalu said “as we witness yet another Easter in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we glorify God Almighty for the gift of life.
“It is a season of self-appraisal as individuals and as a people. Nigerians must imbibe the spirit of togetherness, love, forgiveness and selflessness in their daily lives. Let us rededicate our lives to the service of God and humanity.
“For the sake of building a prosperous Nigeria, we must live in peace and harmony regardless of religious, ethnic and political differences.
The business mogul also called on well-meaning Nigerians to complement government’s efforts by investing in the local economy, and also that the private sector is the key driver of the economy.
While congratulating the Christian faithful, he urged them to extend their hands of friendship to people of other religious faiths.
