As Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, marking the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has called for greater sacrifice, tolerance and love among Nigerians.

According to him, those were the virtues and qualities Christ himself displayed and propagated throughout His life time on earth.

In his Easter message, made public by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, the Bayelsa State Governor noted that, the significance and real meaning of the season would be lost, if Christians allow selfish tendencies, hatred and intolerance to influence their lifestyles and general conducts.

He stated that, the country and indeed the world will be a more peaceful place, if Christians and adherents of other religions see themselves as one and the same people, irrespective of their religious, political, cultural and ethnic affinities.

Governor Dickson, who also urged leaders at all levels of the Government to make sacrifice, as well as work in one accord to turn around the economic fortunes of the Country, called on all Nigerians to see the current challenges facing the nation as a collective responsibility.

While wishing Christians a happy Easter celebration, he encouraged them to keep faith with the policies and programmes of the restoration administration in the state, stressing that, better days were ahead, while also urging them to pray fervently for the peace, unity and progress of the state and the nation in general.

His words: “Security and economic challenges we are currently facing can be surmounted, but we need to make greater sacrifices, show more love and understanding to one another. We need to be more tolerant and always preach peace to pave the way rapid growth in all ramifications.”
