EASTER: Agba Egbe Greets Christians, Preaches Tolerance, Sacrifice



The Executive Chairman Of Ibadan North Local Government has called on Christians especially in Ibadan North Local Government to imbibe the spirit of tolerance, peaceful co-existence and sacrifice for one another, stating that development and growth can only occur in the nation when all tribes and tongue unite and speak with one voice.


The Executive Chairman in his Easter message signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Bodija Akinwale said such fundamental values would go a long way in promoting and strengthening the foundation of love, peace and harmony in the country, adding that the season should serve as a reminder to the selflessness, love, sacrifice and tolerance of Jesus Christ throughout His earthly sojourn, his death and his resurrection.


Stressing the essence of the season, the chairman said Jesus exemplified the virtues of selflessness, love and tolerance during his period on earth, and thereby urged Christians to use the season as a period to reflect on their individual and collective roles towards promoting and sustaining that foundation of love, peace and harmony in the nation.


“We must therefore see this period as a time that presents us the viable opportunity to think about how we can help to steer our immediate communities back on the road to peace, stability and prosperity, by working in the spirit of togetherness,” the Chairman said.


He said there was no better time for us to unite together and eschew bitterness along ethnic and religious lines, adding that no challenge is insurmountable where unity of purpose thrives.


“No doubt, We will surely make faster progress towards the achievement of the peaceful, united, strong, progressive and prosperous country that we all desire if, as a nation, we eschew all divisive, parochial, ethnic and religious sentiments and rivalries, and begin to live more harmoniously with one another, as Jesus Christ enjoined us to,” he said.


Agba Egbe commended the people of oyo state for their continued support to the government of Engr. Seyi Makinde and also their demonstration and promotion of mutual understanding and peaceful co-existence despite existing ethnic, cultural and religious diversities


While wishing every resident of ibadan north local government a happy Easter celebration, Agba Egbe enjoined them to continue to support his administration to deliver more developmental projects that would make life more comfortable for them.
