As Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, House of Representatives hopeful, Prince Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye (MDII), has said the celebration can only be complete when the people live righteous life.
In his Easter message on Saturday, the immediate past ALGON chairman in Oyo State emphasised that Easter would be beneficial to all and sundry when there is true genuine repentance.
“We should remember what this season represents, we are all sinners and with the realisation that our sins have been taken away, let us give our life totally to God, be obedient to God’s commandments and His teaching.
“A wonderful Easter celebration can only be memorable when we have given our lives to God; by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have all been lifted to the glory of God,” he said.
Abass-Aleshinloye called on Nigerians to pray for divine intervention in all areas of our national life, assuring that no matter how troubling the present situation is, Christ’s resurrection power could turn around the fortunes of the countryif Nigerians imbibe the spirit of love, sacrifice and peaceful coexistence.
He noted that Easter is a time for people to show love to one another, adding that the incessant abduction and killings by criminal elements in some parts of the country calls for serious concern.
“Let us remain peaceful, show love, tolerate one another and make sacrifice. That way, we can uphold and advance the legacy of Jesus Christ in our lives, states and the nation at large,” he said.
