Easter: Amosun Tasks Nigerians to Emulate Jesus Christ

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Nigerians have been called on to emulate the virtues and values exemplified by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This charge was given by the Ogun State Governor, Mr Ibikunle Amosun, in a statement issued on Saturday, April 15, 2017, by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr Adejuwon Soyinka.

The Governor, while congratulating Christians for the observance of this years’ Easter, urged all Nigerians, Christians and Muslims alike, to emulate the life of Jesus Christ in rendering selfless service and love to others, irrespective of ethnic or religious differences.

He said, “For us as Nigerians, there is a lot to be learnt from the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ whose life exemplified unconditional love for humanity irrespective of ethnic, religious or social divides.”

“More than observing Easter with fanfare and celebration, Nigerians need to imbibe the lessons of the season and make good use of it in our daily lives and in our interactions with others,” he added.

As far as the Ogun State Governor is concerned, Nigeria will be a better place for all “when Nigerians relate with one another with unconditional love and render selfless service to nation and fellow country men and women.”
