•PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has urged Nigerians to use the period of Easter to reflect on the situation in the country and pray specially for the survival of our democracy.

 

Prince Secondus said in an Easter message to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead that the nation’s democracy more than ever before since 1999 is under heavy stress that need all hands to be on deck for its survival.

The PDP boss said in a statement signed by his spokesperson Ike Abonyi that the nation’s democracy is under pressure and requires only truth and sincerity of purpose from critical stakeholders to survive.

Prince Secondus charged the nation’s leaders to stand up for the truth and save the country from deteriorating.

He specifically commended some nation’s elder-statesmen like former President’s Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida and former Minister of Defence, General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd.), for saying the truth about the state of the nation noting that truth and nothing else can set us free.

“Indicators are apparent that the country is under siege and Nigerians should use this solemn period of Easter to pray for God to intervene and raise good leaders for the country,” Prince Secondus said.

He advised the APC-led Federal Government to imbibe the spirit of tolerance and shun all undemocratic tendencies that heighten tension in the land.

Secondus then charged Christians to see the Easter festivity which also marks the end of the 40 days special fasting and prayers as an ample period for positive attitude to one another.

He assured Nigerians that the new PDP that would emerge after reformation is going to take the country to the next level having been equipped with the requisite experience.

The PDP boss admonished Nigerian leaders to absorb the lessons of Easter and allow it influence their conduct, especially as it concerns the less privileged in our society.

Finally, Prince Secondus wishes all Nigerians a very happy Easter celebration as he urges them to live in peace with one another.
