The lawmaker representing Ekiti North Senatorial District, Senator Olubunmi Adetunmbi, has felicitated with Christians across the country on the successful celebration of this year’s Easter.
He urged the Christian community to reflect on the significance of the season and to unite.
According to Senator Adetunmbi, “As we celebrate Easter, let us reflect on the significance of the season, which is love and sacrifice, to unite us as a people.”
“The season of Easter avails us the opportunity to appreciate the truth that His dying moment on the cross offers us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible and the faith and belief necessary to strive as one indivisible nation.”
“The import of Christ’s resurrection was not to engage in wild and elaborate celebration but to give our lives meaning and direction and the opportunity to close ranks, no matter our differences and circumstances.”
While wishing the country peace, love and the warmth of friendship, Adetunmbi enjoined Nigerians to eschew hate and bigotry, which was what Christ preached against before His ultimate price on the cross.
