My wife, Her Excellency, Dr. Mrs. Martha Udom Emmanuel and I share with you the joy of this season of Easter. Happy Easter to you.
The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Governor Udom Emmanuel earlier today titled his subject of speech ” What Affects One, Affects all ” as he sends words of courage to all christian worshipers to commensurate with the dead of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
He added that Easter is a commemoration of the uplifting story of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, who in spite of being sinless offered himself as a sacrifice for the redemption of others, including his enemies, and became the atonement for the world ravaged by sin and other vices.
By His atoning death, Jesus Christ reconciled mankind to God, broke the wall of division between Jews and Gentiles and brought all of us, into the Household of God. We should thank him for this sacrifice which this season represents.
He touches some points to encourage us not to be of fear of this present coronavirus pandemic that has engulfed the world today.
