The member representing Ekiti Central Federal Constituency one, Hon. Olusola Steve Fatoba has sent his warmest greetings to Christians on the celebration of this year’s Easter.
The lawmaker in a statement congratulated them for the successful completion of the forty-day fast as exemplified by our Lord Jesus Christ in the bible.
“I want to use this medium to congratulate all Christians in Ekiti state and Nigeria as a whole for the successful completion of the 40-day fast and the celebration of another Easter.
“Easter is another important period because it teaches us that there are values worth defending to the point of death, that human life can be readily and voluntarily sacrificed for the sake of love and in defense of truth and justice. Nigerians can learn a whole lot from the supreme sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the glorious outcome of this sacrifice”
Hon. Fatoba stated further that Christians should inculcate the spirit of selflessness and true love as exemplified by Jesus Christ with the shedding of His blood on the cross of Calvary.
He added that God has used the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse our sins and the need for Christians to do away with all sinful acts.
On a final note, the lawmaker called on them to use this Easter period to pray for Nigeria’s peace and progress and the peaceful conduct of the upcoming governorship election in Ekiti state.
“In this season of rebirth, may you feel your faith renewed and your heart made new with the hope Easter brings. Happy resurrection day to all Christian faithful” said Fatoba
