“YOU KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED ALL OVER JUDEA”- ACTS 10:37
He was born a normal child though, conceived by the Holy spirit. Lived a normal life, but performed acts of God yet, was crucified, died and was buried but TODAY, to fulfil the scripture and manifest his God-Nature. He’s risen again, that we may have life and in abundance.
May the blessings of Easter that signify the rising from death of Christ bring to life in you, everything; spiritually, health-wise, financially, maritally etc. In your life.
Over the past forty days I had reasons to observe the Lenten season, as a catholic by baptism and practice. Having also attended Mary Knoll college like most people from Cross River North, lent to us is a traditional period of sober reflection, penance and inquest into many things from God.
During this period, I have had cause to do a personal reflection on the demise of our late sister and senator, Dr. Rose Okoji Oko who passed on to the great beyond. Thankfully, it offered me time to make a solemn prayer for the repose of her soul. May God grant her soul eternal rest and her family, the people of Okpoma, Yala and Northern Senatorial District, the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss of our illustrious daughter.
To those whom I would not be able to physically join in celebrating this season, we are all aware of the lockdown situation in the country. I therefore, enjoin you to remain Prayerful, be highly spirited and appreciative that we are alive and safe in spite of the scourge of the COVID-19 pandemic that has ravaged the world. I can assure you that like the many Easter that we have celebrated before now, we will celebrate more Easters after all this has passed away in Jesus name- Amen. You are advised to please observe all necessary safety rules and instructions- Only the living can celebrate. May God heal also, those who are sick and suffering.
While I observed the lent, mourned the death of our sister, who was also, my contender in the senate for 2019 and observed maximum safety rules for the curb of the corona plague, I have been inundated with calls to declare my intention for the senate seat that had just been vacated by the death of our late sister. I restrained my comment for reasons of the above mentioned situations but as we rise up today with Christ on Easter, I find it noteworthy to give answers to the many questions and announce that I WILL BE PRESENTING MYSELF AGAIN, TO REPRESENT MY GOOD PEOPLE OF CROSS NORTH IN THE SENATE IN THE 2020 BY- ELECTION.
I remain indebted for the show of love and overwhelming support that you gave to me in 2019 and again call on you to lend me your support once more, to serve you effectively and responsibly. Therefore, i call on the people of Cross River North to come out in their numbers; old and young, boys and girls, men and women to elect a leadership that will think first of Cross River North In the by-election. By his stripes, we shall be victorious.
Once again, may the blessings of Easter enliven you in all aspects of your lives and endeavors.
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES
CHIEF WABILLY UGBASHI NYIAM
