urged Christians to use Easter period for sober reflection on the virtues of love, selflessness, forgiveness, sacrifice and perseverance as examplified by Jesus Christ which he said are the hallmarks of Easter celebration.
According to him, “There is no doubt that this is a tough moment in our nation history with Insecurity in almost every part of the country. Rather than succumb to the wishes of the evil doers and feel threatened about the current situation, we must realize the fact that these are trials, and should strengthen our resolve to collectively confront our challenges.
“This moment calls for sober reflection and not fanfare, hence, I enjoin Christians to remain steadfast and fervent in prayers, for God to bring peace back to our land so that issues of banditry, terrorism, kidnapping, and all forms of insecurity will come to an end”, he said.
The Governor, therefore, wish the Christian faithful a successful and hitch-free celebration while urging them to be security-conscious and report any suspicious movement in their area to the appropriate authorities.
