The Kwara State Governor, Dr. Abdulfatah Ahmed, has urged Nigerians, irrespective of religious and ethnic backgrounds, to do something different and meaningful to move Nigeria forward.
Governor Ahmed, in his Easter message, signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdulwahab Oba, called on Nigerians to use the opportunity of being alive with the freedom to optimise God given potentials to make life more meaningful for the less privileged.
He urged Christians and other Nigerians to pray fervently for the peace and economic stability of the country in the face of dwindling allocation.
He called on Christians to imbibe the virtues of forgiveness, selflessness and perseverance learnt during the 40 days of fasting and prayers, which marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that Easter celebration teaches.
He said: “We must all imbibe the spirit of sacrificing and giving to our fellow brothers as Christ did for the redemption of mankind.”
Dr. Ahmed wished Christians and Nigerians a happy Easter celebration.
