Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku, has called on the people of the state to shun actions that can cause crisis and remain peaceful at all times.
He said this in a statement on Sunday in a statement by his media assistant, Bala Abu, on the occasion of Easter.
Governor Ishaku said, “We have had too many crises and conflicts and lost too many innocent lives and valuable properties in the past. These should stop.
“Peace is the greatest need of the state at this point in time and we must commit ourselves to the search for it.”
The governor reminded the people of the importance of the occasion to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ as an outstanding festival in the Christian calendar.
He noted that it was an occasion for the people of Taraba to resolve to “work much harder” for peace and unity among themselves.
“Easter reminds us of the great sacrifice through the death of Jesus Christ and whose triumph over death through His resurrection has made salvation free for mankind,” the governor said.
He urged all Christians to use the occasion to reflect on the life and times of Jesus Christ, particularly his spirit of forgiveness and empathy which saw him healing the sick, helping the poor, and preaching peace among humanity.
Governor Ishaku added, “We all – Christians, Muslims and traditional religious adherents – must work together to achieve peace for the benefit of all.
“I congratulate all Christians on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and wish them a happy Easter celebration.”
