From Noah Ocheni, Lokoja

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello over the weekend enjoined Christians, all over the World to use the occasion of the 2023 Easter celebration to embrace Christ’s life of making sacrifices to humanity.

The governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Muhammed and made available to Journalists in Lokoja stressed the need for Christians to imbibe the good virtues of Jesus Christ to create a better and saner society.

He congratulated the Christian faithful for the successful completion of the Lenten season, which he said was much-needed self-denial to pray for the peace of the country.

“I wish to rejoice with our Christian brothers and sisters all over the world on the auspicious occasion of the 2023 Easter celebrations as a joyous holiday that represents the gratification of the prophecies and the revelation of God’s redemptive plan for the followers of Christ,” Bello said.

While urging Nigerians to remain hopeful about the nation’s progress, Bello said Easter also signifies the celebration of the defeat of death and the hope for salvation.

The governor added that just as the death, and resurrection of Christ signified hope for mankind, there must be a renewal of hope for our nation in this season of great challenges.

While assuring the Christian faithful in Kogi state of the state’s commitment to a joyous celebration free of all hitches, he added that security operatives and other collaborating agencies are working together round-the-clock to checkmate crime and secure the lives and properties of citizens.

Governor Bello noted that the 2023 general elections, which will usher in a new breed of leaders across the country by May 29 represent a watershed for Nigeria.

He insisted that all citizens who participated effectively in the process of electing the new leaders into the various offices “must also commit themselves to pray for the smooth transition of government, growth and prosperity of the country.”
