The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has delivered a special Easter message to the Christians in the State, and the country at large, on the completion of Lent.
Governor El-Rufai, in his Easter message signed by his Special Adviser On Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, pointed out that the enduring message of Easter, which is victory over darkness, ‘’is poignant amidst the uniquely difficult circumstances in which Easter is being celebrated this year’’.
The message reads: ‘’The closure of Churches, due to quarantine conditions in many places across the world, makes it impossible to celebrate Easter in the traditional way; a most unusual development.
“Just as the pains and humiliation of the crucifixion ended in the triumph of the resurrection, today’s difficulties shall provide renewal, a chance to give thanks anew to Almighty God.‘’
Governor El-Rufai, speaking further, appealed to all communities in Kaduna State, to uphold peace and harmony, and urged all residents to observe social-distance, practice regular hand-washing with soap and water, and avoid large gatherings, to protect everyone from Covid-19.
