Easter: Patriotism, selfless service must be politician’s watchwords

PRIMATE of The Church of the Lord (TCL) Worldwide, popularly known as Tabioer, (TCL) Worldwide, Most Reverend (Dr) Rufus Ositelu, have seized the Easter celebration to charge politicians and stakeholders in the Nigeria politics, especially ahead the 2023 elections to let patriotism and selfless service be their watchwords throughout the electioneering campaign, during and after the elections.

Ositelu in his Easter message, further advised politicians to avoid heating up the polity unnecessarily, just as they should endeavour to exhibit the fear of God in all their activities.

He also expressed concern over the high level of insecurity in the country, saying that, “It is important that government at all levels combats insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, wanton destruction of lives and property, and all forms of violence and wickedness frontally and decisively.”

“Life is sacred and, therefore, shedding of innocent blood is a sin and a violation of people’s fundamental human rights. The recent train tragedy in Kaduna where passengers were killed, maimed kidnapped, etc is highly condemnable and all perpetrators must be brought to book.

In the light of the celebration of Easter, the cleric, however, admonished all and sundry to live together in peace, unity, love and harmony as there can be no progress in an atmosphere devoid of peace.

He equally enjoinedfellow clerics to continue to intercede for Nigeria for God to mercifully heal our land so that the nation can enjoy peace, security and sustainable development.
