Easter: Let security, unity of Nigeria guide our utterances –Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari scaled

President Muhammadu Buhari has reeled out a subtle message to Christians on the occasion of the Easter festivities, saying as the nation gradually prepares for another general election, security and unity of the nation should be the guiding principles for the actions and utterances of citizens.

In the message penned by the President, he said love and the spirit of forgiveness should radiate from Christians during this period which also coincides with the Muslim fasting.

Buhari said, “I join our Christian brothers and sisters to celebrate this year’s Easter, which is the most significant event/festival in the Christian calendar.

“This year’s celebration is very unique for adherents of the two great faiths in Nigeria. It culminates the 40-day season of Lent for Christians, where the faithful are expected to fast, pray, assist the poor, abhor injustice and strife, give alms, and penitently engage in self-examination and repentance of sins.

“Similar values apply to the Muslim faithful, currently about halfway into the holy month of Ramadan.

“For us as a nation, the message of Easter, which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ after crucifixion and burial, reminds us of the power of divine love, faith and redemption.

“Easter also evokes in us the resilience of the human spirit not to give up in the face of seemingly daunting challenges of life. This period emboldens us to believe that the current spate of uncertainty and insecurity will soon unfold a season of triumph of good over evil; hope over despair, and light over darkness.

“I urge us to increase our love for one another rather than hate, and show more patriotism, as this is the only country we have.

“I enjoin us, therefore, to live out the eternal words of Jesus Christ on the cross: ‘‘Father, forgive them for they know not what they are doing.’’

“Let us remember that the scriptural emphasis of love has so much relevance for us today as a nation more than ever before, and thus contribute towards its peace and development.

“As we approach another season of electioneering, let the security and unity of the nation guide our actions and utterances. I wish all Nigerians a joyful and blessed Easter”.

John Ajayi, a civil servant, has explained how Standard Alliance Life Assurance Ltd., a Nigerian investment company, refused to pay him N300,000, being proceeds of an investment plan he subscribed to in 2016.

The civil servant, in an interview, said his troubles began when the company would not pay him his money at the expiration of his plan in 2021.

“In 2016, I subscribed to one of their plans that would see them deduct N5,000 from my account on a monthly basis for five years. The investment was supposed to end in December 2021,” Ajayi told FIJ.

“This means that last year December, I was supposed to get a N300,000 payment from the company. That was what we agreed on. On getting to their office in Lekki, I submitted all relevant documents needed so that my plan could be terminated and I could get my money back.

“However, till this moment, I am yet to get my money back from the company. As it is now, they have even shut down their Lekki office. Only God knows where they are now. I am not the only customer who is yet to get his money from the company. Other people are complaining about them as well. Many subscribers now believe they are scammers.”

According to findings, the company owes several customers who were supposed to have been paid at the expiration of their plans.

“All I know is no peace for the wicked. Your office in Onitsha is closed and your manager is a wicked woman. You guys have my money. I dropped messages in your DM. I need someone to talk to me. That’s wickedness!” Ngozi Eribo, one of the company’s subscribers, wrote under an Instagram post made on the company’s official page.

Standard Aliance’s website lists Johnson Egu Chukwu, Tayo Awodiya and Oduniyi Odusi as the company’s chairman, managing director and executive director respectively.

FIJ sent a text to the company via the messaging system made available on its website for comments, but a response had not been received at press time.
