“Most importantly I urge you all to learn and emulate the lessons of love, humility, selflessness, forgiveness and perseverance shown by the Lord Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection especially at this critical period of our national life.
“I felicitated with Christians on the occasion of Easter celebration and I urged you all to embrace and praticalise the lessons attached to season. As we commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind, let us be prayerful and hopeful for better days for our dear state and country.”
