The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has felicitated Christians on the commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, urging them to use the period of the celebration to seek the face of God and work towards a peaceful and progressive nation.
Obaseki in his Easter message charged the Christian faithful to imbibe the virtues of tolerance, sacrifice, and love as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
According to him, “Easter is a time of reflection, renewal and hope. It reminds us of the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus Christ for the redemption of mankind. His death and resurrection brought hope to a world filled with despair, and it remains a symbol of hope for all humanity.
“In Nigeria, we face peculiar challenges that require resilience and hope. As a nation, we have witnessed unprecedented security challenges, and economic difficulties, among others. However, I strongly believe that we will overcome these challenges and emerge stronger.
“As we celebrate Easter, let us draw strength from the resilience of Jesus Christ and remain hopeful for a better Nigeria. We must continue to seek the face of God and work together towards building a nation where peace, unity, and progress thrive.”
The governor charged, “I urge all Edo State citizens to use this Easter period to reflect on our collective responsibility in building a better state and nation. Let us demonstrate love and kindness towards one another and continue to support the efforts of the government in providing good governance.”
