Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, of Ondo State and the immediate Past Commissioner for Works in Ondo State, Engineer Gboye Adegbenro have felicitated with Christians across the country on the successful celebration of this year’s Easter.
Akeredolu urged the Christian community to continue to trust and believe the words of God which enjoins them to love one another.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary(CPS) Segun Ajiboye, the governor noted that Easter, which is celebrated in remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, preaches love and the hope of everlasting life, and he, therefore, asks Christians to continue to have hope and faith in the nation’s leaders’ capacities to develop the country.
While urging the Christian community to be diligent and steadfast in their worship of God, Akeredolu equally asked them not to forget to make moderation their watchword during the celebrations.
Similarly, the immediate Past Commissioner for Works in Ondo State, Engineer Gboye Adegbenro rejoiced with all Christians at Ifedore local government area and the good people of Ondo State on the occasion of commemorating the 2019 Easter Celebration Worldwide.
In his Easter Message issued in Akure, Engineer Adegbenro also celebrates Easter with his professional colleagues who are members of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), his friends at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) as well as his political associates and community leaders across the state.
The former Commissioner therefore enjoins the christian faithful to emulate our Lord Jesus Christ’s great attributes of love, sacrifice, forgiveness and Humility.
The NSE Fellow is of the opinion that the death and resurrection of Christ demonstrated uncommon love and sacrifice for mankind which all must imbibe in our daily engagements.
The Ex-Works Commissioner also urged christian brethren to celebrate with moderation and remember to extend hands of fellowship to the less privileged in the Society during and even after the Easter Celebration.
Engineer Adegbenro prays Lord Almighty to use this holy period to ensure peaceful coexistence, spirit of brotherhood and good neighbourliness as well as economic prosperity among all Nigerians in general and Ondo state people in particular.
