Cross River State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke, has enjoined Christians and Nigerians of all walks of life to reflect on the significance of this year’s Easter brought about by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and close ranks in order to confront the current realities facing us as a nation.

In his Easter goodwill message by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, Governor Imoke urged Christians to use the opportunity of the celebration to rededicate themselves to the values of love, peace, sacrifice and tolerance as embodied in the death of the Savior, Jesus Christ.

According to Governor Imoke, “As we celebrate Easter, let us reflect on the significance of the season, which is sacrifice, to reach out to one another.”

Continuing, Governor Imoke said: “The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us, lie tolerance, accommodation, work and discipline. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to appreciate the truth that His dying moment on the cross offers us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.”

While urging Christians to celebrate Easter with sober reflection, as the country is currently challenged, Imoke noted that “the import of Christ’s resurrection was not to engage in wild and lavish celebration but to give our lives meaning and direction and the opportunity to close ranks, no matter our differences and circumstances.

“May the occasion bring us peace, joy, the warmth of friendship and the steady hand of love.”

He enjoined Nigerians to eschew hate and bigotry, which was what Christ preached against.
