Anambra Times | News at your doorstep..

The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has called on Nigerian Christians to heal the country with Love this Easter in commemoration of the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ to mankind as symbolized by the feast of Easter.

In an Easter Message delivered from the Governor’s Lodge in Amawbia, Governor Obiano observed that the country simmers with bitter politics, rancour and mutual suspicion which can only be healed by unconditional love and urged Christians to seize the opportunity offered by Easter to reach out and touch fellow Nigerians with love.
He pointed out that it has been repeatedly proven that true national integration is never forced upon the people by the political leadership but mostly by the little acts of love and kindness that are freely exchanged between the ordinary citizens of the country.
He therefore explained that as true followers of Christ, Nigerian Christians should provide leadership in country’s quest for peace; turning their swords into ploughshares in the truest traditions of Christianity,
Governor Obiano further observed that in a country split asunder by growing ethnic and religious intolerance, Christians have a great opportunity to live out the creeds of their faith; showing their actual value through their work in response to the scriptural reminder that ‘faith without work is dead.’
The Governor urges Christians, to allow let the light of Christ shine always; showing restraint when provoked, demonstrating tolerance when rejected and showing sacrificial love in the midst of hatred.
He stated that whenever Christians found themselves at the crossroads of life, they must never fail to ask what Christ would have done if he were in that position.
Governor Obiano also assured Ndi Anambra a peaceful Easter celebration, pointing out that he had just donated 40 utility trucks to the security agencies in the state as part of the elaborate plans by his administration to tighten the screws on security across Anambra State.
He called on Ndi Anambra at home and in the Diaspora to feel free to visit home to re-unite and celebrate Easter with their families and loved ones because Anambra remains Nigeria’s safest state.
