The resurrection of Jesus, the reason for Easter, is the foundation of the Christian faith. It is not only the promise of eternity, it is also the guarantee of a life of victory, here on earth.
It is a great privilege to witness another commemoration of the Resurrection of our LORD Jesus Christ. Thus, I congratulate all Christians in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and Nigeria on this important day.
More than ever, we must bring to bear on our outlook on life and our Nation Nigeria, regardless of what the situation around us may be and how things may seem, that despair is not an option.
While we keep the faith, we must also ensure that we embody the teachings of Jesus in our speech, conduct and relationship with others around us, as Jesus is our perfect example and role model.
As the pandemic rages on, we must continue to take precautions and adhere to laid down guidelines for our safety. In this case, a good way to show kindness and consideration for others is to ensure that you wear your mask and observe social and physical distancing even if you have been vaccinated. You must be mindful of the safety of others.
It is my sincere wish and hope that we all live peaceably with all men as we have been commanded, radiating the love and mercy that we have so freely received.
Once again, I congratulate you on this beautiful Easter morning and wish you the blessings of the resurrection of the risen Christ.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu, OON
