The National Chairman of Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has urged Nigerians to pray fervently for the country, noting that Nigeria is under a heavy stress.
He said this in his Easter goodwill message to Christians on Friday.
Secondus said truth and sincerity of purpose from critical stakeholders are the only requirements needed to pull Nigeria off its challenges.
He said, “The nation’s democracy more than ever before is under heavy stress that needs all hands to be on deck for its survival.
“We are under pressure that requires only truth and sincerity of purpose from critical stakeholders to survive”.
In a statement by his Media Assistant, Ike Abonyi, the National Chairman charged the nation’s leaders to stand up for the truth and save the country from deteriorating.
Secondus commended some of the nation’s elder-statesmen like former President’s Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida and former Minister of Defence General Theophilus Danjuma 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” he said.
“My advice to the APC led federal government is to imbibe the spirit of tolerance and shun all undemocratic tendencies that heighten tension in the land” he added.
The PDP boss 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.
He further 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.
He wished all Nigerians a very happy Easter celebration and urged them to live in peace with one another.
