The Chairman of the Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU), Ondo State Council, Comrade Ademola-Adeniji Olapade has congratulated stout hearted people of Ondo State especially workers who are Christian Believers on the occasion of the 2020 Easter Celebration.
The State chairman in his 2020 Easter Message, expressed appreciation to God who out of love for mankind sent his only beloved son to die for our salvation.
Olapade who is also the Ondo state Vice Chairman of JNC, called on all believers with full hearts, minds and voices to praise the unseen God the all powerful father and his only son, Lord Jesus Christ who ransomed mankind with his blood.
“As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, bringing eternal life to us, we should not allow the monster called coronavirus that is ravaging the world to deprive or deny us the right to rejoice for the gift of eternal life given to us by God even though the virus has caused damages and loss of lives.
He also advised all Nigerians to stay safe by adhering to the directives of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the state government.
Olapade also enjoined Nigerians to be strong, united and help one another in anyway they could during this hard time when it seems all hope is lost, bearing in mind that the resurrected Christ had given people hope and by His strips they are healed.
The NCSU Chairman also called on the State government to have at heart the less privileged in the State who due to this coronavirus pandemic are facing difficult time.
He stressed the need for the Ondo state government to ensure palliative items flagged off by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu get to truly vulnerable people across the state.
He called on all Nigerians to flee from sin, forgive one another as Christ forgave our sins on the cross of Calvary and above all continually live a life of prayer, penance and charity to show God that the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ is not in vain.
