Next generation network, Globacom has sent felicitations to Nigerian Christians on the occasion of Easter celebrations.
In a statement to commemorate the occasion, the telecommunications company encouraged the Christian faithful to be sober and circumspect as they celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Globacom urged Christians to use the occasion to remind themselves of the core essence of Easter which included “love and sacrifice,” adding that Christians should 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 during this season and beyond.
While urging Christians to pray for the peace and unity of Nigeria, the company enjoined them to exemplify the teachings of Jesus Christ which emphasise peace for mankind.
The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, sacrament, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial, leading to the celebration of Easter.
The Easter celebrations commenced with the commemoration of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ on Good Friday which falls on April 14, while Easter Sunday, which is the resurrection day, falls on April 16, 2017.
The company, in the spirit of the season, pledged to continue to provide high quality products and service at competitive rates throughout the Easter period and afterwards, assuring subscribers of seamless communications experience during and after the festive season.
Globacom also urged its subscribers to “spread the good news of Christ’s resurrection through the network” by making calls and sending messages of goodwill to their loved ones.
