Okoh emphasized that Nigeria’s strength lies in its diverse society. Therefore, people must promote mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.
He said, “As we commemorate this significant festival, we acknowledge Nigeria’s diverse society, comprising individuals from various ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. It is within this rich diversity that our strength as a nation resides.”
“Consequently, we must persist in promoting mutual respect, understanding and peaceful coexistence among all religious communities,” the Christian leader advised.
