Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has called on Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of brotherhood and togetherness, saying such attributes will engender peace and development.

The governor made the call in his goodwill message to commemorate this year’s Easter celebration.

He specifically, urged Christians to imbibe the lessons of sacrifice, perseverance, forgiveness and care for the less privileged which the Easter celebration symbolizes.

The Governor added that Nigeria would be a beautiful country and a better place “if we live in harmony with one another in an egalitarian society where every citizen is free to ply his or her legitimate trade in any part of the country without fear of molestation or intimidation and according to the dictates of the law.”

Governor Ortom prayed that the joy of the season would permeate and be sustained in every part of the country even in the face of the daunting challenges the country is
