Easter: Let’s Imbibe Spirit of Sacrifice, Salinsile Urges

The Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of Osun, Hon Rasaq Salinsile has called on Nigerians

The Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of Osun, Hon Rasaq Salinsile has called on Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of tolerance, selflessness and sacrifice as being exemplified by Jesus Christ during His earthly sojourn.

Salinsile, in his message to commemorate this year’s Easter, said these virtues are most imperative to our peaceful co-existence as a nation and as such we must seek to promote them for the greater good of all.

According to him, “It is only through selfless service and sacrifice to fatherland that Nigeria can attain the desired socio-political and economic progress.

“Nigeria will be great if we all tolerate one another and sacrifice to place our nation above self-interest and eschew divisiveness, ethnic and religious tendencies which has been the undo of our Nation.

While wishing all Nigerians particularly Osun people a happy Easter celebration, Asoremaweyin as he is fondly called by his admirers enjoined them to continue to support the administration of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to deliver more democracy dividends as he has done in the past 7 years.

The State Government of Osun has wished all indigenes and residents of the State of Osun a happy easter celebration.

The government in a short video to celebrate with the people encapsulates in it its drive towards making the state’s economy more vibrant with lean resources.

Displayed is the Osun Workers Drive recently commissioned by the 1st National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Hassan Sunmonu in recognition of the state worker’s resilence and belief in government inspite of the lean resources.

The government wishes to assure that it will consolidate on its achievements in the last seven years as well as seek resources for the welfare of its workforce despite its meagre resources even as the administration of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola approaches its HomeRun.

In his Easter message, Governor Rauf Aregbesola urged Christians to live the ideals of Easter and emulate Jesus Christ.

His Media Adviser, Mr Sola Fasure in Osogbo in a statement said “The ideal of Easter is love manifested in sacrifice. It was love that motivated Jesus Christ to lay down his life. It was love also that made him adopt non-resistance method, even as he endured a farcical trial that led to his condemnation and crucifixion and death on the cross. But this turned out to be a bigger victory, as he rose from the dead on the third day, according to Christian tradition and the bible.

“Christians therefore should emulate Jesus by demonstrating love to one another and to their neighbours, just as Jesus admonished his disciples to love their neighbours as themselves.

“The absence of love is the foundation of all evils in our society. Those who love others will not steal from them, kill them, tell lies against them or harm them in any way. Christians will only be like Christ if they emulate him and pattern their lives after him”, Governor Aregbesola stressed.

Governor Aregbesola also admonished the people of the state, irrespective of their faith, to pray for the nation and the state of Osun, noting that the challenges before the nation require divine intervention.

“We should all also, irrespective of our religious persuasion, to commit the affairs of our nation into the hands of God. Though we have many challenges which appear to be formidable, but they are nothing in the hands of God. If we pray and seek the face of God, in addition to working hard and eschewing evil, we shall overcome the challenges.

“The future is bright for us if we can take maximum advantage of our human and material resources. “I wish you all a happy Easter celebration”, the statement concludes.

Pope Francis celebrated Easter mass under tight security and a sunny sky on Sunday in front of tens of thousands of pilgrims gathered in a flower-bedecked St Peter’s Square.

Under a longstanding tradition, the Netherlands donated some 50,000 tulips, daffodils, roses and orchids for the occasion.

Access to the famous square for the mass on the holiest day in the Christian calendar, marking Jesus’s resurrection, was tightly controlled.

Tourists and clergy alike formed long queues to have their belongings checked and pass through metal detectors.

“Rome is the centre of the Catholic faith,” anti-terror prosecutor Federico Cafiero de Raho said Saturday.

“For those who believe in the radical form of holy war, Rome represents so many things put together — there’s the pope, the Vatican…”

Italian authorities are concerned that some of the estimated 120 radicalised Italians who left for Syria or Iraq to fight with jihadist groups could be returning to the country posing as migrants.

Last week saw a wave of anti-terror arrests, with Interior Minister Marco Minniti warning of a high risk of an attack.

At noon (1000 GMT), the pope is to deliver his traditional “Urbi et Orbi” (To the City and the World) address from the balcony of St Peter’s Basilica.

The head of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics is expected to touch on many of the world’s conflicts and woes in the speech carried by news media around the globe.

On Good Friday, Francis said he was “ashamed” that younger generations would inherit a world “fractured by divisions and wars”.

Bishop Kukah Calls For Introspection In Easter Message

  The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Kukah, has asked Nigerians to look inwards and re-order

Mattew Kukah, Politicians

 

The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Kukah, has asked Nigerians to look inwards and re-order their priorities so as to provide solutions to the various socio-political and economic problems burdening the nation.

He made the appeal in a special Easter message addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari, the country’s political leaders and other citizens.

Bishop kukah reminded the President that the country is being divided by religion and ethnicity, which he believes threaten the very foundation of the nation.

He said: “I believe that this country is so split both vertically and horizontally today that all of us must honestly identify our many sins of omission and commission so that we can honestly seek a solution.

“This is a time for us to genuinely face what looks to me like an impending calamity. The gathering clouds are clear for us to see and even those who cannot see can hear the rumbling and rolling sound of thunder. We ignore them at our own risk.”

While he acknowledged the President’s efforts in delivering on his major campaign promises of security and the anti-corruption fight, he urged him to find ways of reconnecting with the people to genuinely address their yearnings and aspirations.

“We have never felt so alienated from one another. The bogeyman of religion, region and ethnicity, which we thought we had overcome by the sheer nature of your support base, has come back with a vengeance to haunt and threaten the very foundation of our existence.

“Mr. President, you are too distant from your people. There is a sad feeling that you do not share in the pain and suffering of your people. You must very quickly find a way of connecting with your people,” the Bishop said.

Furthermore, he accused political leaders of being consumed by materialism and abandoning their responsibilities to the people, promoting hatred, intolerance and corruption and being mere contraptions to grab power.

Religious leaders were not spared as the Bishop also accused them of falling into the temptation of presenting their churches and mosques as platforms for partisanship.

He, however, advised the leaders to “reduce the culture of godfatherism, and focus on building the foundation of a strong political culture”.

For the citizens he warned them against being manipulated by politicians, the businessmen/women, the religious leaders, and to defend their dignity as human beings and children of God.

“Defend your dignity as human beings and children of God. Do not allow the rich and powerful, who are rich because you are poor, to divide you.

“Rise and defend your right to food, health, shelter and the rest, because poverty is not a divine inheritance,” he said.

According to him, defending oneself does not mean turning o violence but rather, recognizing ones rights.

“Easter teaches us the message of love and of gentleness and of true strength. It tells us that to defend oneself does not mean to turn to violence or to any other misdeed or evil. But it means to recognize one’s dignity as a child of God and remember that each one is created and called to enjoy the fullness of life.”
