Easter: Imbibe, live the teachings of Christ, Abiodun tells Christians

By Peter Adedoyin

Ogun State Governor Dapo, Prince Abiodun has congratulated Christians in the state, over the Easter celebration and urged them to use the celebration to pray for Nigeria in general, and Ogun State in particular.

The governor, who noted that Easter is one of the celebrations which signifies and renews hope in mankind, said the best way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ is for the Christians to imbibe and live the teachings of Jesus 

Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Saturday, said the greatest sacrifice Christ made with his resurrection should serve as an assurance that there is hope that the country will surmount its present challenges.

While calling on the people to see the Easter period as not only for celebration of triumph of Christ over death, but a period of sober reflection, particularly, at this moment the nation is facing insecurity and economic downturn, the governor, enjoined them to celebrate moderately.

He also urged them to be their brothers' keepers and share with those who don't have, noting that the essence of the celebration is to show love and be good neighbours.

Abiodun added, "though, the greater love had been demonstrated to mankind by Jesus who died to give life to the world, spreading of love by the Christian faithful during Easter will be reliving love Christ preached while on earth.

The governor, therefore, assured that his administration will continue to work to ensure that the state is safe and attractive to investors, submitting that Ogun residents will always be centrepiece of his administration's policies and programmes
