Total telecommunications solutions provider, Globacom, has sent a message of goodwill to Nigerians on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebrations.
In a statement released in Lagos, the company enjoined the Christian faithful to be sober and circumspect as they celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
While reminding Nigerians of the lessons of the season which are entrenched in “love and sacrifice,” Globacom advised Christians to use the “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 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 while urging them to “spread the good news of Christ’s resurrection through the network” by making calls and sending messages of goodwill to their loved ones.
The Biblical purpose of Lent is to purify believers through prayer, sacrament, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial, leading to the celebration of Easter.
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.
