The Governor of Edo state, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has asked Christian faithfuls in the state to emulate Christ’s exemplary and selfless service to humanity as they commemorate Christ’s death during the Easter celebration.
The Governor, in his message to mark the Easter said: “As Christian faithful celebrate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary this Easter season, I urge everyone to reflect on the essence of this day, the value of giving oneself and passion for the downtrodden.”
According to the governor, as reported by the Vanguard “Good Friday embodies Christ’s love for mankind, for which he gave his life. Likewise, as we celebrate, we should remember to be our brother’s keeper, uphold the spirit of togetherness and sacrifice for the greater good of all.”
The Governor urged Edo residents to celebrate the festive period peacefully and take the opportunity to share the love of the season with their neighbours. “I enjoin Edo people to share the love of this season with their neighbours. Adequate arrangement has been made to ensure hitch-free Easter celebration in the state.” the Governor enjoined.
