Enugu State governor, Sullivan Chime, has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of the Easter celebrations to pursue peace and tolerance among all ethnic and religious groups.
The governor equally appealed to Christians to pray for divine intervention in the nation’s contemporary challenges.

Chime, who spoke through a goodwill message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Chukwudi Achife, congratulated Christians on the  successful conclusion of the lenten season, which he described as a period of purification, and deep reflections on God’s eternal love and compassion for mankind.
He noted that such reflections would help Nigerians appreciate the need to respect the rights of one another, especially the rights to life and peaceful co-existence with their neighbours.
“As we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we must encourage ourselves to use the occasion to rededicate ourselves to values and actions that promote love, tolerance, brotherhood and unity among all Nigerians,” Chime said.
He disclosed that the state government would ensure that the celebrations were peacefully observed in the state and enjoined citizens to conduct themselves in a manner that would reflect the joy of the occasion.
