He also urged Christians to remain peaceful in all their dealings and at all times.

“It is fitting for Christians to imitate Christ during this 40-day fasting and prayer.
“Jesus used this period to show his supernatural love for mankind, and so we are oblige to do same to one another devoid of religious differences.
“Jesus during his fasting period showed how peaceful he is, and that was why even in the face of serious challenges, he remained peaceful
“As much as Christians are facing series of challenges today, I still want to urge us to be peaceful and kind to our fellow Christians and Muslims alike.
“We must eschew violence and embrace peace, for most of these challenges are man made, and certainly, God will bring succour soon, ” he assured.
The cleric further admonished Christians to reach out to the needy in the society, so as to make them have a feel of the dignity of life.
