Easter: Oyetola felicitates Christian community…Urges them to emulate Christ.
The Christian community in the State of Osun has been urged to emulate Jesus Christ by making sacrifices that will advance the cause of development and take into consideration the welfare of others as they celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ.
In an Easter Message released on Friday in Osogbo, the State Governor, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, said Easter exemplifies the sacrifice that Jesus Christ paid to save mankind.
The Governor called on the people of the State to also re-dedicate themselves to the service of God and mankind as they reflect on the ideals of Good Friday and Easter Celebration.
Oyetola urged Christians to also use the occasion to intensify prayers and devotion for God’s intervention as the Country and the world at large are fighting the scourge of Coronavirus.
He also urged them to be their brothers’ keepers by reaching out to the less privileged around them, adding that the statewide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the State had expanded the population of the needy and the vulnerable group in the State.
