As Christians across the world celebrate the Easter season, marking the remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Ogbeni Akano Yaya Kayode (AYK) has felicitated with the Christian faithful.
AYK who is an APC Chairmanship aspirant in the forthcoming local government election in Abeokuta South, appealed to the people on this year’s occasion of Easter, to take advantage of the significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ to advance peace and commitment to God, in faith and in practice.
In his Easter message released on Sunday, AYK congratulated Christians on the successful forty-day long Lenten season in penance for the atonement of sins and salvation of mankind, which Easter portends.
According to him, “As we celebrate, I urge all Christians and everyone to work in love, peace and unity and exercise faith and hope, so we can overcome our current national challenges and build a prosperous nation”.
He advised the people to reflect soberly and intensify prayers for God’s intervention and abiding grace, for the country and the world to fully overcome the rampaging COVID-19 pandemic and other challenges.
