Kaduna state governor- elect, Senator Uba Sani, has said that Nigeria would be a better place if citizens imbibe the values of humility, love, compassion, peace and righteousness.
Sani stated this in a message marking Easter celebrations in Kaduna.
He admonished Christians to strive to imbibe the values which Jesus Christ lived.
Sani called on Nigerians to use the opportunity provided by Easter to purge themselves of feelings of hate and forgive one another.
He said, “We must strive to imbibe the values which Jesus Christ lived. If we imbibe the values of humility, love, compassion, peace and righteousness, our communities and country would be better places”.
The governor -elect, noted that Easter is a time of spiritual and physical renewal, stressing that the Lenten period enables the faithfuls to return to God through fasting, prayers and alms giving.
According to him, Easter is a time for making personal sacrifices and contributing to the building of peaceful communities.
Sani said, “We must use the opportunity provided by this period to purge ourselves of feelings of hate.
“We must forgive one another. We must rehumanise our communities and spread love around. We must strive to imbibe the values which Jesus Christ lived.
“If we imbibe the values of humility, love, compassion, peace and righteousness, our communities and country would be better places”.
He lamented that “Most of our communities are in the throes of conflict”, pointing out that development had been retarded and “Peace is the only way towards progress and development.”
Sani said the general elections were over and call on the people of Kaduna to support him to succeed.
“We asked our people to give us their mandates to offer selfless service to them.
“Just as Jesus Christ lived a life of selfless service to the people, elected people must live lives of unconditional service to the people”, Sani said.
He said, “If we deemphasize self and prioritize the people, we shall build more prosperous communities and our people will live happier and healthier lives.”
While thanking the people of Kaduna state for giving him their mandate, he promised to be a “servant leader.”
“I will treat our dear citizens with respect. I will be compassionate, our dear state will witness sustained progress and development”, he promised.
“All l seek is your support and cooperation. Use this Easter celebration to reflect on our journey as a state and what you can contribute to take the state to higher heights.
“Everyone will have an opportunity to make his or her contribution. It is a collective endeavour”, he said.
