As Christians around the world mark the Feast of Easter, the Speaker, Taraba State House of Assembly, Dr. Joseph Albasu Kunini on Saturday called on the people of the state to use the period to pray for peace and security in the country and state in particular.
The Speaker made the call while fielding questions from journalists for his Easter message, shortly after a one -day conference organized by the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-Cultural Association on peaceful coexistence between fulani and other tribes, held in Jalingo.
He said, Nigeria and the whole world is plagued by a deadly disease that seems to destroy the inmost soul of the world and urged the people to pour out their hearts to God in prayers for a cure.
Kunini noted that, the world is becoming a nightmare, adding that daily, people are confronted with gruesome acts of violence, criminality, man’s inhumanity to man, and a growing level of insecurity.
“This is a global reality. This is a national reality. This is our reality in Taraba. And so, we must all turn to God especially at this holy season and pray for peace. And while we pray, it is incumbent on us all to also work towards achieving peace because prayer without works is vain.
The Speaker however, stressed the need for people to give the government a chance to bring about the much needed development, which he said, it can only be achieved in a secured atmosphere of peace and harmony.
” It is our collective responsibility and we have to put all hands on deck to achieve this”. Kunini emphasized.
