The NOA boss urged the people to emulate Christ by tolerating and showing love, kindness and render help to one another during the Easter season and after.
She said the Easter period calls for sober reflection on God’s love for mankind and how this can reflect in one’s relationship with fellow human beings to make the world a better place.
”’As we celebrate another Easter we should be reminded that it’s a season of love and sacrifice. The life, death and resurrection of Christ connotes a new hope, order and aspirations of Christian faith which epitomizes love, peace, sacrifice and perseverance.
