A former Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning in Osun state, Adewale Bolorunduro has felicitated with followers of Jesus Christ on the celebration of Easter.
Bolorunduro asked Christians to use the occasion of the festival and have deep reflections on the love that was displayed by Jesus Christ when he was on earth.
The politician made this call in a statement released by his media office in Ilesa on Friday.
Bolorunduro called on Nigerians to eschew all forms of rancour and live peacefully with one another just as Jesus Christ exemplified and taught his followers through his life of sacrifice, sanctity and dedication.
The former Commissioner, who is also the Leader of the Bibiire Political Group said “Easter is a period to reflect on the unconditional love that Christ had and still has for mankind such that he laid down his life for the remission of our sins”.
“Nigerians should emulate Jesus who did not discriminate or cause anyone harm during his ministry on earth. Anywhere he went, he was doing good. He lived peacefully with all men, even with those who disliked him.”
Dr. Wale Bolorunduro also charged Christians and fellow Nigerians of diverse faiths at large to model Jesus Christ by loving their neighbours just as themselves and be their brothers’ keeper.
