Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has felicitated with Ndi Anambra on the occasion of 2022 Easter celebration
In a statement made available to the media by Joe Anatune, Head of Soludo Media Office, the Governor said the solemn occasion of Easter calls for self introspection and sober reflection, noting that the occasion is symbolic because it marks the suffering, pains and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, after his crucifixion.
The Governor recalled that the Easter Day 2022 marks exactly one month since he assumed office as the Governor of Anambra State
“It is therefore of utmost importance for us to inculcate and emulate the noble virtues of the personal sacrifices, sobriety and love which the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ symbolises,” he stressed
The statement further reads: “Therefore, on this special Easter celebration, I call on every one of us to imbibe the spirit of this solemn occasion as we rededicate ourselves collectively to the onerous tasks ahead, of building a prosperous, safe and liveable homeland for our children, grandchildren, great-grand children and the generations to come”
“Let me again, reassure that our dear state will continue to thrive on the trajectory of growth, peace and development despite the current wave of insecurity which is drastically being addressed.”
“And in this spirit of Easter, I call on those who are still in the bush to surrender their arms and embrace the olive branch which has been offered to them”, the statement added.
“Let me reiterate that as a people, we will never cede or yield our homeland to criminals. The irrepressible spirit of the good people of Anambra State shall always triumph”
I therefore urge you all to continue to live in peace and harmony as you also extend love to one another on this special occasion.”
