The agency made the commitment in its Easter message made available to journalists in Abuja.

The statement quoted the agency’s Director-General, Dr Temitope Ilori, as emphasising that Easter is a time of reflection, renewal, and hope which symbolises the triumph of light over darkness and of love over despair.

“As we commemorate this significant occasion, we are reminded of the values of compassion, unity, and resilience – values that resonate deeply with NACA’s mission to combat HIV/AIDS and promote the well-being of all Nigerians. In confronting the challenges posed by the HIV epidemic, the spirit of Easter inspires us to stand together, resolute in our commitment to overcoming obstacles and building a brighter future for all Nigerians,” Ilori stated.

Ilori wished all Christians a blessed Easter filled with peace, joy, and the blessings of renewal.

“May this season bring comfort and strength to all those affected by HIV/AIDS, and may our collective efforts continue to bring hope and progress in our fight against the epidemic,” she added.

NACA is Nigeria’s primary agency responsible for the coordination and control of HIV/AIDS programmes.
