Easter: Sokoto Governor tasks Nigerians on assisting indigents

Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state has urged Nigerians to use the Easter period to assist indigents and persons with vulnerability.

Tambuwal gave the advice in a message issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam,

to commemorate Easter in Sokoto on Sunday.

According to him, Nigerians should stand up for all those who found themselves in vulnerable situations in the country.

The governor said that all members of the society should also make sacrifices that would advance the cause of the vulnerable and the downtrodden.

Easter is a period of divine. We should spread that love around by praying and standing up for the cause of victims who found themselves in vulnerable situations within us and elsewhere.

We can do this by working closely with charity organisations to give them hope, courage and the will to be strong to make Nigeria and the world a better place to live in, the governor said.

He congratulated Nigerians, especially Christians, for the Easter celebration and restated his administration’s commitment to implementing policies and programmes with positive impact on the lives of the citizens.
