As Nigerians join other Christians worldwide to celebrate this year’s Easter, data grandmasters, Globacom, has enjoined them to embrace love and peace which is the central message about the crucifixion and rise of Jesus Christ from the dead.
The company, in a goodwill message on the occasion of Easter celebrations said;
“Christ manifested to offer Himself as propitiation for the sins of the world. His life and messages preach love towards mankind and peace even in the innermost recesses of the earth.”
“It will therefore be an aberration if we do not exhibit love and peace as espoused by Christ,” Globacom said adding that the cases of kidnappings, banditry and sundry crimes which permeate the country are an anathema to love, peace and oneness of the country.”
“To the Followers of Christ, the true message of Easter proclaims the greatest act of love known to man. God’s infinite love for mankind is the true message of Easter, a love that will continue into Eternity. It is agape love that should triumph over animosity, strife and disunity”
Globacom assured Nigerians of seamless voice, data and Short Messaging Service (SMS) during and after the Easter celebrations encouraging them to avail themselves of the various data and voice offerings from the network.
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 will commence with the commemoration of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ on Good Friday and culminates in Easter Sunday, which is regarded as Christ’s resurrection day.
