Nigeria's foremost telecommunications company, Globacom, has sent a message of goodwill to Nigerians on the occasion of this year's Easter celebrations.
In a statement issued in Lagos, the company, while calling on the Christian faithful to preach the message of peace during the season, also enjoined them to be sober and circumspect as they celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Reminding Nigerians of the lessons of the season which are entrenched in “love and sacrifice,” Globacom advised Christians to use “Easter period to further reflect deeply on the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the Cross, and engage in acts of sacrifice, peace and love for one another as well as the nation during this season and beyond.”
The statement further called on all Christians to supplicate fervently for the peace and unity of Nigeria, urging them to exemplify the teachings of Jesus Christ which are deep-rooted in peace for mankind, especially at this critical time of our nation building.
Globacom used the opportunity to assure all its subscribers of quality service on the network throughout the holiday period and beyond and called on its customers to “spread the good news of Christ’s resurrection through the network” by making calls and sending messages of goodwill to their loved ones.
Easter celebrations commenced with the commemoration of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ on Good Friday which falls on April 14th, while Easter Sunday, which is the resurrection day, falls on April 16th, 2017.
