Easter: Senator Alli Charges Christians To Uphold Virtues Of Jesus Christ

Senator Sharafadeen Alli (APC- Oyo South) has enjoined Christians worldwide to uphold the virtues of humility, love, selflessness and sacrificial spirit exhibited by Jesus Christ as they celebrate Easter.

This is contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Akeem Abas, and made available to newsmen on Saturday in Ibadan.

Senator Alli emphasised the significance of Easter in the Christian calendar and its universal message of atonement, redemption, renewal, and hope.

He underscored the importance of reflecting on the profound teachings of Christ, which emphasise love, sacrifice, empathy, and compassion, particularly during these challenging times.

“Easter embodies the core of our Christian faith, as it commemorates Jesus Christ’s ultimate sacrifice. I encourage Nigerians to remain steadfast in their devotion to God despite the challenges our nation faces.

“Just as Jesus persevered through tribulations, let us, as Christians, strive to emulate his humility, love, selflessness, and sacrificial spirit,” he said.

Alli enjoined Christians to draw inspiration from the Easter season to foster unity, understanding, and goodwill amongst people of all faiths, urging them to renew their commitment to promoting peace and harmony in their communities.

The lawmaker commended the resilience and steadfastness of Christians worldwide, especially in the face of adversity, seeking prayers for peace, healing and prosperity across the globe.

Alli reiterated his commitment to championing policies and initiatives that promote religious tolerance, respect for diversity, and socio-economic development in Oyo South and beyond. As Easter serves as a time for spiritual reflection and renewal, he urged constituents and citizens alike to use the occasion to strive towards a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
