The governorship candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Oyo state during last year general elections, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has felicitated with Christians across the state on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration, urging them to remain steadfast even in the midst of Coronavirus that stopped them from marking the event in its usual way.

The former deputy governor of the CBN described Easter as a significant event in Christiandom which is celebrated annually to mark the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

“Though, we are marking this year’s Easter in the midst of a deadly pandemic that is ravaging the whole world, we must retain our hope in Christ that this period like every other in the past shall pass”.



Adelabu urged all Christians to imbibe the teaching of Christ and love their neighbours as themselves. “This is a period to show love, forgiveness, compassion and assist one another, it is by doing so that the society can fare better”.

He also commended the efforts of the federal government, private organisations and public spirited individual for putting in place various palliative measures to cushion the effect of sit-at-home order. He urged the Christian’s across the state to continue to pray for our leaders and those in authority today for the wisdom and energy to handle this pandemic and protect the citizens of the state.

The business mogul also called on the residents of Oyo state to maintain personal hygiene, observe social distancing and follow all preventive guidelines that will help in curbing the spread of the virus.
