He said Nigerians should continue to practice the lessons of sacrifice, care for the poor, deep spiritual reflection and love for all humankind, as observed during the period of lent.

“Let us uphold each other in our common humanity and pray for peace in our land. Let us do our best to promote harmony in our communities and reject strife in our land”, the governor said.

He congratulated Christians on the completion of Lent and the great feast of Easter, saying, “This festival of triumph follows the holy season of Lent, during which the Christian community engaged in fasting, prayers and works of charity”.

The governor pointed out that Easter symbolises the triumph of hope over despair and an affirmation that darkness cannot trump the plans and wishes of Almighty God.

“Jesus Christ set an example of sacrifice that has moved men and women through the ages. As we celebrate the triumph of Christ, let us embrace all the lessons of Easter, never losing faith in the will of Almighty God and the triumph of good over evil”, he added.

The governor seized the opportunity to call for unity against the non-State actors destabilising the State.
