Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday felicitated with the Christian faithful as they commence fasting to mark the 40 day Lenten season even as he urged them to use the period to pray for the peace and stability of the nation.

Saraki who made the call in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu in Abuja, specifically enjoined the Christian faithful to seek the face of God most especially on the way out of the present socio-economic and security challenges confronting the country.

He thanked all Nigerians for their unflinching support for the Federal Government in the fight against insurgency, saying their invaluable contributions have in no small way contributed to the successes recorded so far in the fight against Boko Haram.

Saraki said: “I heartily congratulate all Christians as they commence Lent which is a season dedicated to fasting and prayers by Christian faithful.

“Prayers, no doubt, are very key to achieving our socio-economic objectives as they bring the hand of God to intervene in areas human strength and wisdom cannot prevail. We must therefore endeavour to ensure that the lessons of Lent – which include sacrifice, spiritual and physical renewal – manifest not only in our individual lives but in all facets of our national life.”

According to the Senate President, since Lent is one of the most important seasons of the church for penitence, introspection and stock-taking with a view to discover areas that require changes, it is equally time for us as a nation to renew ourselves spiritually and in all ramifications.

He prayed God to grant all Christians in particular and all Nigerians in general who are participating in the 40 day fast the physical and spiritual wherewithal to complete the exercise and to benefit immensely from the divine interventions in their lives and the nation as a whole.
