Okorocha: Use Easter to pray for Buhari, Nigeria


Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha

As Christians celebrate Easter to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has urged them to use the opportunity to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari to enable him direct the affairs of the country well.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Sam Onwuemeodo, and made available to The Guardian yesterday, Okorocha said the period calls for exceptional love to one another.

He charged Christians, especially those in the state, to celebrate the Easter period in a special way and show exceptional love to one another on the ground that Jesus rose from the dead, saying if Jesus had remained in the grave, Christians would not have had any claim to make today.’’

The governor advised merry makers to be mindful of what the death of Christ signified and shun selfishness, as demonstrated by Jesus, by virtue of his death on the cross for the redemption of mankind.
