The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has charged Christians to imbibe the virtues of love, sacrifice and tolerance as espoused by Jesus Christ.
Governor Obaseki gave the charge in his message to mark Good Friday, a Christian holiday in preparation for the Easter celebration.
The Governor described Good Friday as a day of reflection, repentance and gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross for the redemption of mankind, noting that it is a time to renew faith in God and recommit oneself to acts of kindness, compassion, and service to others.
Obaseki called on Christian faithful to use the opportunity to consider the many challenges that Nigerians face as a people and a nation knowing that just as Jesus Christ suffered and died for all, everyone must be willing to make sacrifices and work together to build a better, progressive and prosperous state and nation.
He urged all to use the occasion to think about the values of sacrifice, love, and unity that Jesus Christ exemplified during his time on earth.
