THE All Progressives Congress, (APC) gubernatorial aspirant in Oyo state, Engr. Raufu Olaniyan has called on Christians in the state to imbibe the values of Jesus Christ.
He added that the selflessness exhibited by Jesus Christ when he laid down his life for mankind is worthy of emulation.
Olaniyan who gave this advise on Friday in a statement released from his media office to mark this year Easter celebration noted that Jesus Christ is an ideal example of how we should pattern our lives, stressing that Christ has shown to us what passion , perseverance, and determination can achieve if we will mirror his life style.
The former Permanent Secretary, however advised Christians and the good people of Oyo state to see this season of Easter as an opportunity to show love to one another, pray for the peace and prosperity of not only Oyo State but the country in general; noting that “it is in the peace of Oyo state and Nigeria lies our collective well being”.
The Igboho born politician also encouraged all to be steadfast, and courageous in seeking to contribute their quota to the development of the state and to eschew acts that could disrupt its unity and peace.
The ex- OYSROMA boss, Olaniyan concluded by referring Christians the teachings of Apostle Paul in the book of Philippians Chapter 4 verse 8, wherein Christians are advised to ” Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things”.
He noted that that there is no better time to adhere to this advise than the season of Easter.
