Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has appealed to Christians in the country to seize the Easter celebration to renew their faith in God and unite for national and collective growth.

The governor, in his Easter message on Friday, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, congratulated the Christian community in the state and across Nigeria on the Easter celebration.

The message read, “Easter evokes the time-tested themes of love, sacrifice, compassion, unity, and triumph of good over evil at different times.

“The sacrifice of Jesus Christ to guide the flock and the enduring legacy he left for humanity call for deeper reflection at this time and always.”

He urged citizens to seize the moment to renew their faith in God, unite for national and collective growth, and help one another to uphold goodness and justice in the world.

AbdulRazaq wished the Christian community a happy Easter celebration.

The Federal Government, through the Office of the Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, on Wednesday, declared Friday, March 29, and Monday, April 1, 2024, as public holidays for Christians in the country to celebrate Good Friday and Easter Monday, respectively.
