The All progressives Congress (APC), Ondo State Chapter has extended Easter greetings to all Christian brothers and sisters in Ondo state, calling on its members to use this period to embrace love and unity to strengthen the political party.
This is contained in a Statement signed by the Director, Media & Publicity of the party, Mr Steve OTALORO
The leadership of the Party in the State use this easter celebration to appeal to members to reflect on the teachings of Jesus Christ and his humility, exemplary life and reignite their love for the party.
According to Ondo APC, there is faithful to pray fervently for the country in the fight against coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world.
Mr Otaloro urged Nigerians to stay safe and stay at home as directed by the government so as to defeat COVID-19 pandemic, in the true spirit of Easter at the end.
According to the APC Director, the party is going to face difficulties with power-hungry forces.
It will be recalled that one of the political groups battling within the party is APC Unity Forum led by a former deputy governor, Alhaji Alli Olanusi and over ten governorship aspirants are operating against the incumbent Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s second term bid.
However, the Ondo APC statement indicates that, “this year’s Easter celebrations is taking place at a critical time in our political life when our Party is preparing itself for another gubernatorial elections, facing difficulties with power-hungry political groups that have constituted themselves as stumbling blocks within and outside our party by trampling over our unity of purpose.
ONDO APC URGES INDIGENES TO EMULATE JESUS CHRIST HUMILITY AND EXEMPLARY LIFE AS THEY CELEBRATE EASTER.
The All progressive Congress (APC), Ondo State Chapter, extends Easter greetings to all Ondo State citizens, in particular, our Christian brothers and sisters and, especially, to all members of our great party in Ondo State.
Easter, which is celebrated in observance of the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, is celebrated throughout the world with prayers and flying of kites.
This year’s Easter celebrations is taking place at a critical time in our political life when our Party is preparing itself for another gubernatorial elections, facing difficulties with power-hungry political groups that have constituted themselves as stumbling blocks within and outside our party by trampling over our unity of purpose.
These elements are trying feverishly to deceive and betray members of our party through subterfuge, falsehood, propaganda and senseless attack on some of our party highly respected national leaders, the Party itself and our party led-government in the State.
But, like Jesus Christ whose will was tested, but eventually triumphed, particularly, over betrayers like Judas, in same manner the democratic forces will prevail over our present day Judases who are prepared to sell their souls for the gratification of their egos and inordinate political ambitions.
Our party remains confident, however, that our members will allow good sense to prevail and reject these power hungry elements who are so obsessed with the love for power that they will stop at nothing to realize their ambitions, even, if it means destroying the very fabrics of the party in the state.
The leadership of the Party in the State takes this opportunity to appeal to them to reflect on the teachings of Jesus Christ and his humility and exemplary life and have a rethink and reignite their love for the party as the party is greater than anyone’s ambition. The supremacy of the party and it’s leadership is sacrosanct.
Let us, also, at this time reflect on the enormous progress we have made as a leading political party in the State over the years and to strive to ensure that the gains made over the years are not squandered by those with unpatriotic and anti-party predisposition.
As we celebrate Easter, let us re-commit ourselves to do all within our power to help our beloved country fight the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world by staying safe and staying at home as directed by the government so as to soar to even great heights in the true spirit of Easter at the end.
Good people of Ondo State, as you know, Easter signals a season of renewal of change of attitude of moving ahead. It is the time for climbing onto the next level, and on October 10th you’ll have another chance to vote to deepen the dividends of democracy and progress we have made together in the state, and together we can continue in the path of progress, and for peace and prosperity in our dear state.
