EASTER: Ika House Of Reps Hopeful, Rtn. Ehiwuogwu Harps on Christlike Virtues

The Frontline aspirant for the Ika Federal house of representatives seat come 2023 Rtn. Lucky Ehiwuogwu Monye has called on Christians and indeed the good people of Delta State to use the occasion of this Easter celebration to reflect on its significance in the life of the State.

The humanitarian philanthropist who spoke to newsmen at Federal University of Petroleum Resources (FUPRE), Ugbomro, Effurun, Delta State yesterday during the official declaration of senator Ovie Omo Agege for the Governor of Delta State noted that, it would amount to hollow ritual if the import of the celebration is not underscored by the appreciation of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ with its central theme on sacrifice, urging Christians to use the opportunity of the celebration to rededicate themselves to the values of love, peace, sacrifice and tolerance as embodied in the death of the Saviour, Jesus Christ.

According to Rtn. Ehiwuogwu “As we celebrate Easter, let us reflect on the significance of the season, which is sacrifice, to team together as a people.”

Continuing, the most widely accepted Ika federal house of representatives hopeful said “The joyful news that He is risen does not alter the contemporary world. Still before us, lie tolerance, accommodation, work and discipline. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to appreciate the truth that His dying moment on the cross offers us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.”

While enjoining modest celebration, Rtn. Ehiwuogwu as he is profoundly called noted that “the import of Christ’s resurrection was not to engage in wild and lavish celebration but to give our lives meaning and direction and the opportunity to close ranks, no matter our differences and circumstances.”

While wishing the State peace, joy, the warmth of friendship and the steady hand of love, the humanitarian philanthropist enjoined Nigerians to eschew hate and bigotry, which was what Christ espoused before His supreme sacrifice on the cross.
