By Adejoke Adeleye

As the world celebrates Easter, Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has called on Christians in the state to live the teachings, virtues and message of love by Jesus Christ.

The governor, in his Easter message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Friday, equally urged the Christians to reflect on the resurrection of Jesus as a sign of God’s love and gift to them, hence, they should continue stop spread love and promote unity.

He noted that God manifested His power through the resurrection of Christ, which according to him, symbolised hope for good time to come after trials and tribulation.

Abiodun said though it is a time for the Christians to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, the period should, however, be used to offer prayers to God for His mercy on the country in general and Ogun State, in particular.

Abiodun added that as Jesus conquered death and rose after three days in the tomb, saying God would help Nigeria to overcome its present challenges.

He, however, reiterated his administration’s commitment to the delivery of good governance in terms of socio-economic and infrastructural development.

The governor also said he would continue to discharge his duties with justice, equity and fairness as his guiding principles.

While congratulating the Christians for witnessing another Easter, Abiodun urged them to celebrate with the less privileged by showing love to them in a manner Jesus exemplified.
