Oshiomhole Calls For Thanksgiving At Easter
GOVERNOR, Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday, said the peace, which has prevailed in Nigeria post-election is enough reason for Nigerians to give thanks to God this Easter season.
In his Easter broadcast, Oshiomhole, said, “there were apprehensions of violence during and after the elections, but God has decreed peace and there is peace everywhere.”
“This period, we are enjoined to show love to our neighbours, our family members and, indeed, to our great country. “Already, there is so much we should thank God for this Easter season, just a few weeks back, many of us were apprehensive that the country would break into violence, there were a lot of people who planned mayhem, there were all kinds of speculations of what will happen during and after the Presidential election, as you all can see, God decreed peace and there is peace everywhere.
“I want us to maintain this cordiality, this relationship, this effective collaboration between men and women of different religious faith, working together, living together in peace and helping to advance the course of unity of our state and our nation. We must build on this in the years ahead. “I enjoin you to continue to pray for our leaders including President Goodluck Jonathan and incoming President Muhammadu Buhari.
