GOVERNOR-ELECT, IMO STATE
Easter: Ihedioha preaches peace and sacrifice for common good.
As Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, Imo State Governor-elect, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, CON, has urged the good people of the state to rededicate themselves to God by building bridges of understanding and tolerance.
In a message to mark the Easter celebrations, Rt. Hon. Ihedioha said that just as the sufferings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ give hope to humanity, Imolites should look up to the future, despite the daunting challenges of the present, with optimism.
“I am very optimistic that the present challenges, no matter the enormity, will by the grace of God, give way to a prosperous state when we rededicate ourselves to the service our dear state.”
He calls on the people of the state and indeed all Nigerians to reflect on the Reason for the Season.
“Easter is all about sacrifice, selflessness and altruism. As believers, we share the bond of divinity as children of God when we commit ourselves to the task of bettering the lot of fellow human beings. As Imolites, perhaps, the biggest sacrifice we are called upon to make today, is to join hands in rebuilding our state.”
“I, therefore, call on all the good people of Imo State to join us in this rebuilding project, as I extend my hands of fellowship to all who believe that the Imo of collective dream is possible.
While wishing Imolites and Nigerians happy Easter celebrations, the Governor-elect re-affirms his commitment to rebuilding Imo State through visionary, selfless leadership built on the ethos of sacrifice that will engender hope and foster peace and unity.
