The executive Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has congratulated the christian community within the state concerning the ongoing Easter celebration.
The governor called it a period of introspection, self-discipline, sacrifice, forgiveness, and commitment to God.
New Telegraph reported that the governor stated this in a statement issued on Saturday, urging Nigerians to take advantage of the period to seek God’s favour for the country and eschew all divisive tendencies.
The statement read, “The Easter festivities come at a unique moment in our national life when we have just elected new representatives and chief executives to pilot the affairs of the country for the next four years.
“In the spirit of Easter, and of the Muslim’s holy month of Ramadan, we need to bury the hard feelings that came with the electioneering campaign and join new leaders for the task of nation-building, a task that requires everyone to support every effort for sustainable growth and development.
“I wish everyone greater strides and glad tidings as we celebrate the festivities.”
