The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has called on Nigerians, particularly Christians not to relent in sharing love, peace and tolerance across the length and breadth of the country.
The Speaker’s message was contained in his message greeting Nigerians particularly Christians on the celebration of this year’s Easter festival. The message was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Razak.
According to Rt. Hon. Obasa, “Jesus Christ, throughout his lifetime, preached peace, love among the people and he was tolerance personified. Indeed if we are to imbibe the teachings of Christ, then we must love one another, live in peace and learn to tolerate each other”.
The Lagos Assembly commended Nigerians in general and Lagosians in particular for their support,.cooperation and prayers for the All Progressives Congress (APC) administrations at both state and national levels assuring that both the Lagos State Government and the Federal Government will not relent in putting in place measures and programmes that will improve the standard of living of Nigerians as well as enhance their welfare.
“We will always seek for your understanding and patience as government at all levels strive to make live better for us all,” he said.
Rt. Hon. Obasa called on Nigerians particularly Lagosians to eschew violence and avoid any act that can cause breach of peace and tranquility in the country. “In essence, we.must be vigilant at all times and ensure that we report anyone,.group or event that can cause breach of peace in our.communities to security agents. The task to secure our environment is a collective responsibility hence all hands must be on deck in our.colective resolve to wipe out criminals and criminal activities from our society,” he said.
The Lagos Assembly Speaker while congratulating Nigerians, particularly Christians on the celebration of the Easter festival, urged them not to relent in praying for the country. “I wish you all a happy Easter celebration,” he concluded.
