The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, has called on Deltans to sustain the prevailing peace in the State, noting that no sacrifice is too much for peace.
While felicitating with Deltans in particular and Nigerians in general at the Easter celebration, the Speaker posited that people should make sacrifice for peace and tolerate one another.
In a press Statement issued in Asaba by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Dennis Otu, the Speaker, implored Deltans to do everything possible to sustain the prevailing peace in the State, adding that no meaningful development can take place in an environment where there is no peace.
According to the Statement; “I want to use this opportunity of the Easter celebration by Christians all over the world to call on Deltans to sustain the prevailing peace in the State so that we will continue to enjoy the Smart Agenda of the State Governor, Senator (Dr) Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa”.
“As a people, let us protect the interest of the State always. We should shun violence. Let us tolerate one another for the love of our dear State and country.
“Let us make sacrifice for one another just as our Lord Jesus who is the reason for this season made Sacrifice for mankind through his death. As we mark the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it is my prayer that there should be perfect peace in all parts of the State.”
He added that;”May the celebration of the passion and death of Christ bring a total renewal of God’s favour, Grace and blessings in our lives and dear State.”
