Secretary to the Osun State Government, Teslim Igbalaye has called on all Nigerians to take advantage of the significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ to advance peace and commit themselves to God, in faith and in practice.
Igbalaye, in his Easter message, congratulated Christians for successful forty-day Lenten season for atonement of sins and salvation of mankind, which he said Easter represents.
The Osun Scribe, who maintained that Easter is the hallmark of Christianity, stressed that the celebration of Christ’s resurrection and salvation offer Nigerians a great opportunity to come closer to God and promote all virtues that would enhance peace, love, unity and progress of the country.
While wishing the good people of Osun State and indeed all Nigerians a spiritually rewarding Easter celebration, Igbalaye urged them to reflect soberly and intensify prayers for God’s intervention and abiding grace, for Nigeria to fully overcome the rampaging insecurity, banditry and kidnapping and other challenges.
He, therefore, reiterated that Senator Ademola Adeleke administration will continue to serve with the fear of God, and to work assiduously towards the advancement of peace and development of Osun State, for the wellbeing of the people.
