Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, on Sunday called on Christians to always give room for the light of Christ to shine in them by showing restraint when provoked, demonstrate tolerance when rejected and show sacrificial love in the midst of hatred. 

The governor who made the statement in his Easter message assured the people of Anambra State of a peaceful Easter celebration saying that he had just donated 40 utility trucks to the security agencies as part of the elaborate plans by his administration to tighten the screws on security across Anambra State. 

He urged indigenes in Nigeria and in the diaspora to feel free to visit home to re-unite and celebrate Easter with their families and loved ones, “because Anambra remains Nigeria’s safest state.” 

While observing that Nigeria is awash with bitter politics, the governor enjoined Christians to use the power of love to heal the nation.

Obiano said: “Whenever we find ourselves at the crossroads of life, we must never fail to ask ourselves, ‘what would Christ have done if he were in our position?”

The Easter message, which was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, James Eze, said: “It has been repeatedly proven that true national integration is never forced upon the people by the political leadership but mostly by the little acts of love and kindness that are freely exchanged between the ordinary citizens of the country.

“The country simmers with bitter politics, rancour and mutual suspicion which can only be healed by unconditional love.

“I urge Christians to seize the opportunity offered by Easter to reach out and touch their fellow Nigerians with love.

“As true followers of Christ, Nigerian Christians should provide leadership in our country’s quest for peace, turning their swords into ploughshares in the truest traditions of Christianity.”

Obiano further called on Nigerian Christians to heal the country with Love this Easter in commemoration of the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ to mankind as symbolized by the feast of Easter.

He added: “In a country split by growing ethnic and religious intolerance, Christians have a great opportunity to live out the creeds of their faith, showing their actual value through their work in response to the scriptural reminder that faith without work is dead.”
