A gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Mr. Olawale Rasheed has felicitated with Christians on the celebration of Easter, encouraging them to use the commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ to seek God’s face for economic and social revival of Osun state.
In an Easter message he personally signed, Mr. Olawale urged the people of the state to unite and use the season of Easter to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and prepare their minds for the redemption of Osun state from sordid state which the current All Progressives Congress (APC) has led it to.
He charged that just as Easter exemplifies the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus Christ to save mankind from the abyss of ruins, “we should join efforts that is primed to salvage our state from the state of hopelessness that this current government symbolises.”
Olawale rallied the people to overcome their fears and anxieties and rather, embrace resolves to move forward in the spirit of the resurrection to build a state where goals and aspirations are met, urging them to emulate Jesus Christ by making sacrifices that will advance the course of development.
“The lessons on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ offers us a moment of sober reflection and solace. Though, it’s a moment of celebration but we needed to remind ourselves to bear the culture of selfless service to humanity as exemplified by Jesus Christ,” the Iwo-born politician noted.
While wishing the people of the state and the entire Christian world a Happy Easter celebration, Olawale enjoined fellow citizens to re-dedicate themselves to the struggle for the emancipation of Osun state as they reflect on the ideals of Good Friday and Easter Celebration.
