Adamawa State Governor, Rt.Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has extended his felicitations to all Nigerians, especially Christians on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebrations.
Easter symbolises God’s redemptive mission over humanity, the triumph of light over darkness, hope over despair and good over evil.
Fintiri in a statement by his Media Aide Mr Humwashi Wonosikou therefore called on residents of Adamawa State to use the opportunity that Easter provided to show love to one another and make sacrifices for the overall good of the society.
“As we celebrate the Easter in sober recollection of Christ’s crucifixion, let us think about how we can each help to steer our State and Nation back on the road to peace, by working in the spirit of oneness.”
While commending the understanding they had exhibited to one another irrespective of their differences, the Governor pointed out that this had ensured mutual love and peaceful co-existence in the State.
“Nonetheless, I implore you to shun acts that could undermine the hard earned peace and development our administration has succeeded in providing over the last three years. I charge you to remain vigilant, abide by the Laws and demonstrate acts that point to moral rectitude,” he said.
Fintiri while regretting that many would not be able to celebrate Easter with their families because they cannot travel home as the Nation is currently gripped with gloom over unfortunate killings, kidnappings and violence, called for unity and resilience among Nigerians, saying “The harsh conditions of living today are a tough test for the Country, but like the previous tests, we will pull through.
“We have been tested many times before and we have always done what is necessary to pull through all difficulty and adversity, we have always found inspiration in ourselves and each other to find the sunshine after the storm.”
Governor Fintiri also advised the people not to allow the present circumstances blind them to the spirit and intention of Easter and the message inherent in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ, noting that it is through love and sacrifice that they could uphold Christ’s legacy of service to humanity.
“As we commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, let us also take time to emulate the virtues of love, sacrifice, forgiveness, humility, courage and endurance, which Christ embodied and remarkably demonstrated during His earthly ministry,” he said.
While calling for prayers for peace and security to return to all parts of the country, he urged Nigerians not to lose hope of a brighter and greater future for the country.
Governor Fintiri reassured the people of Adamawa State that his administration will not relent in doing what it is elected to do, the evidence that has restored peace and the massive developments ongoing across the State.
“We are more than prepared to take governance to another level in Adamawa. We will continue to provide dedicated and honest leadership, where every citizen irrespective of religion or ethnic origin, feels secure to live, invest and prosper.”
