The Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Dr Peter Odey has called on all in the state and country to practise love for one another.

He made the call in his Easter Message to Christians on Sunday morning.

He said “As Christians across the World commemorate Easter Celebration, I enjoin all Christians and Cross Riverians to imbibe the virtues of the Lord Jesus Christ which is to love one another. They should do this with pureness of heart and sincerity of purpose.”

He reminded them that love is what rules the world and conquers even the darkest of places, noting that Christ is the greatest teacher of love.

According to him, “The resurrection of Jesus Christ reminds us of the love of the Father. It brings to mind His loving kindness for mankind and what Christ represents. It should draw us back to Christ and the counsel of God for your life shall stand…

“As we celebrate the burial and resurrection of Christ, may we be reminded that love is what rules the world. Love conquers even the darkest of places and Christ is the greatest teacher of love. It is my earnest prayer that you experience peace, soundness of mind and body and the love of the Father in your hearts.”

He charged Christians to use the period to pray for the state, country and leaders at all levels.

Odey hailed the people of the state for their unwavering support to their administration.
