”As we are aware, the events leading to the resurrection of Christ were a significant milestone in the history of Christianity. The death and rise of Jesus Christ, therefore, symbolized sacrifice and the divinity of God.

” Thus, Jesus Christ personifies selflessness, humility, patience and perseverance, he said.

Sule also enjoined Christians and other Nigerian People to continue to imbibe the virtues of Jesus Christ by showing love, good neighbourliness and peaceful coexistence among the diverse people of the State.

“I call on Christians and other Nigerian People to use this Easter period to reflect on the good teachings of Christ that preach forgiveness, sacrifice and tolerance.
