Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun has felicitated Christian faithful in the state over the Easter celebration and urged them to use the occasion to pray for Nigeria in general and Ogun in particular.
The governor, who noted that Easter was one of the celebrations which signifies and renews hope in mankind, said the best way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ was for the Christian faithful to imbibe and live the teachings of Jesus
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, he said the greatest sacrifice Christ made and his resurrection should serve as an assurance that there is hope that the country will surmount its present challenges.
Abiodun called 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 the essence of the celebration is to show love and be good neighbours.
The governor, therefore, assured that his administration will continue to work to ensure the state is safe and attractive to investors, submitting that Ogun residents will always be centrepiece of his administration’s policies and programmes.
