Akinwunmi Ambode, Lagos State APC Guber Candidate
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has felicitated with Lagosians, urging them to imbibe the spirit of love, perseverance and renewal, as Christians in the state join their counterparts worldwide to celebrate Easter.
In an Easter message released over the weekend and sent to SKYTREND NEWS, Ambode urged residents of the state to use the holy season of Easter to reconnect with the common thread of humanity that connects people together, especially at this period that Lagosians are forthright about the sanctity of their future.
“I offer my warmest greetings as I join fellow Christians all over Lagos in celebrating the resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world and the hope that comes with this important season of renewal.
“For me and countless others, the Easter period is a time for reflection and renewal. We remember the grace of an awesome God and in recalling all that Christ endured for us, we cannot but be inspired, guided and strengthened by this period that reminds us of our responsibilities to God and to one another,” he stated.
Urging Lagosians to use the occasion of Easter to reflect on its significance in the life of a nation, Ambode noted that this year’s celebration coincided with a period when residents are preparing for a process that will guarantee the future prosperity of the state. He, therefore, reminded of the need to let the spirit of love, perseverance and sacrifice guide their conduct in order to preserve the state as a prime example in peaceful conduct, tolerance and good governance.
“With people of various tribes and creed cohabiting peacefully, Lagos State is a leading example in human relations. This is the time to come together and renew our faith in the state we are all contributing to develop. We must rise to the possibilities of greatness that this state offers and rededicate ourselves to the cause to keep it on the path of progress and excellence,” he stated.
