As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to celebrate Easter, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has urged citizens to use the occasion to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice, tolerance and peaceful co-existence.
Senator Omo-Agege in a statement by his special Adviser, media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga also calls on Nigerians to renew their commitment to the promotion of peace, unity and brotherhood among all groups in the country.
The Delta Central lawmaker says the celebration of the resurrection of Christ should be a constant reminder for everyone to extend the virtues of selflessness, love and forebearance.
Omo-Agege, therefore, urges Christians to use the season as a period to reflect on their individual and collective roles towards promoting and sustaining the foundations of love, peace and harmony in the nation.
“As we remember the death of Jesus and celebrate His resurrection, let us make sacrifices for those around us and renew our commitment towards building a better society. Let us not be dismayed because with His resurrection, Jesus Christ calls us to proclaim and live the gospel of true love and selflessness.
Senator Ovie-omo Agege says no nation can make any meaningful progress in an atmosphere riddled with pockets of violence and killings.
“We must therefore see this period as a time that presents us the viable opportunity to think about how we can help to steer our nation back on the road to peace, stability and prosperity by working in the spirit of togetherness,” he said.
