Mr. Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has urged residents to reflect deeply on the significance of Easter.

Wike encouraged everyone, especially Christians, to utilize the time to reaffirm their commitment to the virtues of empathy, forgiveness, and compassion.

He described the season as a great celebration of faith, sacrifice, and hope.

According to a statement obtained by a Persecondnews correspondent in Abuja from the Director of Press in the Minister’s Office, Anthony Ogunleye, the minister said the Easter story features the ultimate emblem of sacrifice—Jesus Christ’s selfless act of sacrificing his life to save humanity.

“As we gather with our loved ones to commemorate this sacred occasion, let us pause to reflect on the significance of the celebration as a time for reaffirming our commitment to the values of compassion, forgiveness, and empathy.

“Let us therefore reach out to those in need, offer a helping hand to the less fortunate, and spread kindness and goodwill wherever we go.

“In the FCT, we are blessed with a diverse and vibrant community that embodies the spirit of unity in diversity. Regardless of our differences in culture, religion, or background, we are bound together by the shared values of tolerance and respect for each other.

“This Easter, let us therefore celebrate our diversity as a source of strength and let us reaffirm our commitment to building a more inclusive and harmonious society for all.

“Permit me also to express my sincere gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, for his visionary leadership and unwavering commitment to the progress and development of our nation.

“Under his guidance, we have embarked on a journey of transformation, driven by a renewed sense of hope and optimism. As residents of the FCT, let us keep faith in President Tinubu and his administration, and let us actively contribute to the realization of his vision for a better Nigeria.

“On our part, the FCT Administration remains deeply committed to ensuring the welfare and well-being of all residents.

“We are working tirelessly to address the various challenges facing the territory, from security to infrastructure development and education, as well as healthcare provision.

“Many of our interventions, as many will attest, are already yielding the desired results. However, I recognize that true progress can only be achieved through collective effort and collaboration.

“Let us also celebrate responsibly and obey all extant rules and regulations, especially those on environmental sanitation and traffic, while also being security conscious.”
