Also, Nigerian Governors have felicitated Nigerian Christians on the occasion of the Easter celebrations in the country.
Among them is Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who said Easter exemplifies the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus Christ to save mankind, noting that as individuals, Christians must take into consideration the welfare of others.
In his Easter message by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, the governor called on Rivers people and indeed Nigerians to re-dedicate themselves to the service of the state as they reflect on the ideals of Good Friday and Easter Celebration.
Noting that the season calls for a fresh beginning, forgiveness, love and friendship, Wike urged the privileged to reach out to the less privileged as everyone works to deepen the culture of true Christianity.
Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma said the event was a unique day as it marked the liberation of mankind from bondage to freedom adding that Christ suffered and died on the cross so that our sins can be forgiven to pave way for us to inherit eternal salvation.
