Abia State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, has called on Christians in the country to use the period of Easter to pray fervently for continued peace and unity of Nigeria.
In his Easter message to the people through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Charles Ajunwa, the Governor further enjoined Christians to pray for the successful completion of the April 11, 2015 governorship and House of Assembly elections and a smooth transition to power.
According to him, the lessons of love, humility, selflessness, forgiveness and perseverance shown by the Lord Jesus Christ through his death on the cross and resurrection should be emulated by all Nigerians at all times especially at this critical period in our nation’s history.
He pointed out that although Christ underwent very trying and difficult times on the cross in order to bring salvation to man, he never gave up but persevered and triumphed in the end.
The Governor said the salvation brought to mankind by Christ should not be taken for granted and admonished Nigerians to look up to God for solutions to their problems.
The Abia number one citizen advised Nigerians to let the love of Christ continue to pervade the country and implored all to reflect on the life of selfless service lived by Jesus Christ.
He congratulated Christians on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration and wished them a happy celebration.
