Easter: Ayade Calls For Renewed Faith In Leaders

In Breaking News

By Ushang Ewa

Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade has said the celebration of the Easter season will be an incomplete ritual if Christians and Nigerians do not reflect on its significance in the life of the nation and appreciate the sacrifice, death on the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ with the central theme being sacrifice.

“As we celebrate Easter, let us reflect on the significance of the season, which is love and sacrifice, to unite as a people,” Ayade said in his Easter goodwill message signed by his spokesperson, Christian Ita where he 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 and renew their faith in their leaders.

“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 and the faith and belief necessary to strive as one indivisible nation,” Ayade said.

He called for moderate celebrations in the face of the biting recession and harsh economic realities positing that: “The import of Christ’s resurrection was not to engage in wild and elaborate celebration but to give our lives meaning and direction and the opportunity to close ranks, no matter our differences and circumstances.”

While wishing the country peace, love and the warmth of friendship, Ayade enjoined Nigerians to eschew hate and bigotry, which was what Christ preached against before paying the ultimate price on the Cross.
