Governor Uduaghan's Easter Message
GOODWILL MESSAGE FROM HIS EXCELLENCY, DR EMMANUEL EWETA UDUAGHAN, GOVERNOR OF DELTA STATE, ON THE OCCASION OF THE 2010 EASTER CELEBRATIONS
Dearly beloved Deltans,
For most Christians, Easter is a time for spiritual renewal for families here and around the world, to be positive about tomorrow, especially while reflecting on the sacrifice our Lord and Saviour made for the sins of mankind. It is a time filled with opportunity and hope, a time to look at old problems in new ways and a time for strengthening our faith in God through His son, Jesus Christ.
2. In this spirit, I ask fellow Deltans and indeed, all Nigerians, to reflect anew on the theme of resurrection, which is the true essence of Easter. I urge all to take the celebrations as a time for sincere reflections and reconciliation. Jesus Christ taught humility, friendship, leadership and organization with exemplary character. As Christians, we must learn to be Christ–like in all our day to day activities whether in private or public.
3. For our people to achieve their goals there is need to bring to an end divisiveness, intolerance and an urgent need to replace them with mutual understanding, love and respect. My responsibility is to serve all Deltans and I see my responsibility clearly. I have embraced it for the sake of our children who deserve a better and secure future. That explains why I always turn to our people. I urge you, fellow Deltans, to join me in the quest to ensure that we bequeath sustainable development in every sector to our great State.
4. As we renew our commitment to family and friends, let us also renew our commitment to all Deltans – those with us today and those whose future we can play crucial roles to positively touch.
5. On behalf of my family and the Government of Delta State, I heartily felicitate with all Deltans as we celebrate Easter.
6. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL!
Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan
