Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun, joined millions of Christians the world over to observe the Easter season.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Olufunmilayo Wakama, Amosun stressed the need for harmony in the quest for a new Nigeria, irrespective of ethnic, political and religious affiliations.

He stressed that “the period is symbolic for us as a nation, having recently elected a new President.

“As we commemorate the resurrection of Christ, I see a new Nigeria under the leadership of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, and I urge all well-meaning Nigerians to join hands with him to bring about accelerated socio-economic progress,” he said.

Amosun urged everyone to ponder over the supreme sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and take a cue from His selflessness by eschewing all forms of political, social and religious vices.

He prayed for God’s guidance and blessings for the Buhari presidency and continuity in Ogun State, as Nigerians go to the polls to elect their governors and State Assembly members next Saturday.
