Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, on Friday felicitated with the Christian faithful on the occasion of Easter.

This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Turaki Hassan, Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs to the Speaker, in Abuja.

Dogara called on Christians to use the Easter period to pray for the restoration of peace and economic stability in the country.

He said that Easter symbolised sacrifice and service to God and country, and therefore, urged Nigerians to emulate the life of Jesus Christ who laid down his life for mankind.

The speaker also urged Nigerians to be their brothers’ keeper and make necessary sacrifices for their fellow country men and women.

“Times are hard, our country is going through difficult times occasioned by economic downturn. Government alone cannot do it.

“Our contemporary challenges require that we persevere in our prayers for leaders at all levels and the country for divine wisdom to enable us surmount them.
