Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has called on all Nigerians to emulate our Lord, Jesus Christ at this Easter Season and afterwards.

In his Easter message to the people, the Governor said, “Easter is a period which calls for sacrifice just as our Lord Jesus Christ exemplified when He shed His spirituality and assumed a human form in order to save humankind from sin and eternal damnation” He added that this singular action culminated in our Lord's death on the Cross (Philippians 2:6-8).

The Governor who reminded Christians and non-Christians alike that it was “the sacrifice and service offered by our Lord which brought Him to glorious resurrection and exaltation”, urged all to take a cue from Him.

To political and other leaders, the Governor urged them to lead the life of Christ as they move to transform their Constituencies while displaying a high sense of humility, altruism and frugality.
