He called on Christians to imbibe these virtues as they are capable of impacting positively on the socio-economic development in Nigeria by fostering unity, reducing conflicts and encouraging cooperation among Nigerians.

This, he said, is in tandem with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
