As Christians around the world celebrate Easter, Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade has called on Nigerians, most especially political and traditional leaders to exhibit characteristics of selflessness and always put God first in their actions.

In an Easter message by the governor, signed by Mr Christian Ita, his special adviser on media and publicity, he said it was only through the show of love and compassion for one another and for the country, sacrifice and selflessness that the country can navigate itself from the current difficulty being faced.

According to Ayade: ” I charge Nigerians, particularly Christians, to imbibe Christ’s virtues and make them the template for everyday living.

“Of course, Christ’s death for the redemption of mankind and His resurrection represents an unwavering love, monumental sacrifice, unparalleled compassion, wholesome selflessness and definite triumph over despair.

He added: “I do not doubt that as Nigerians, these virtues if we inculcate them in our daily life, will help us navigate the present difficulties”, Ayade said.

“The essence of Lent and Easter offers us all, especially the political class, a veritable opportunity for deep introspection and soul-searching to reflect on how best to move our country, Nigeria forward.

“I, therefore, call on politicians to put God first, think Nigeria first, play by the rules and adopt politics with ethics as political activities leading to the 2023 general election hot up.

“Like Christ, let us show love, sacrifice, compassion and selflessness so that together we can surmount our challenges and come out strong as a people united by the common desire for good”
