The Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association, SKCLA, has tasked Christians to embrace the spirit of sacrifice, love, peace and tolerance as examplefied by Jesus Christ.
The Chairman of the Association, Apostle Dr Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, gave the challenge in a Easter Message to felicitate with Christians community as they celebrate Easter, which signifies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Apostle Kure, 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.
“Our Country is in dare need of prayers for healing from this current state of insecurity that is hampering our growth and development”. He said.
The SKCLA Chairman 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.
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.
“We are in a technological era, in as much as I must commend the efforts put in by the Military in reducing these attacks in Southern Kaduna to the bearest minimum, there is need for the authorities to begin to deploy the use of modern technologies to track these bad elements to their hideouts and make them to pay for their actions”.
He admonished the people in Southern Kaduna to continue to be vigilant by reporting suspicious people to the authorities and not to loose sleep in protecting their lives, properties and land from the aggressors.
The statement also commend 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.
