The Provost of Baptist School of Theology, Igede-Ekiti, Rev. Philip Akinbobola, has urged Christians to show love to the needy in this season of Easter.

He made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado-Ekiti.

Akinbobola advised Christians to emulate Jesus Christ who suffered on the cross of Calvary for the liberation and salvation of mankind.

According to him, Easter period should not only be a time for merry-making but should also be a time for sober reflection.

In the same vein, Pastor Dare Afolabi of the Word of Life Church, Ado-Ekiti, said Christians should always be reflecting on the teachings of Christ everyday of their lives.

He said an individual should endeavour to know the purpose of God to fulfill his destiny like Jesus did.

Afolabi advised Christians to love, forgive and live a life of righteousness which Easter preached.

He urged Nigerians to shun evil vices like corruption, violence and other acts that could jeopardise the peace of the nation.
