Delta State People’s Democratic Party, PDP Frontline politician and House of Representatives aspirant for the Isoko Federal Constituency, Bashorun Askia Ogieh, FCNA, CrFA, has felicitated with Christians on the celebration of Easter.
Bashorun Askia urged the entire Christendom to rededicate themselves to God that has sovereignty over the affairs of man, who has been ordained to chart a new course of prosperity and fulfillment for the country.
He said that despite the rudderless leadership being faced by the Country, there is the dire need for men of proven integrity to use their capacity to return Nigeria to the the right path.
He used the opportunity to offer himself for the rebuilding of the nation, through the Isoko Federal Constituency by seeking to be elected into the House of Representatives, during the forthcoming 2023 elections.
In an Easter message titled, “A Time To Chart A New Beginning”, Bashorun Askia said:
“This weekend, Christendom is celebrating the redemption of man through the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
“This year’s celebration has a special significance, coming just ahead of the 2023 General Elections that will define the extent our dear country will go in returning to the path of restoration.
‘As the Holy Book says in Proverbs 11:14,
“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”
“Our dear country has been the victim of a rudderless leadership. However, we are not powerless. In us lies the capacity and road map to bringing Nigeria back onto the right path. In this season God used it to reconcile us to himself, we are offered an opportunity to smoothen the path to reconciliation with the Most High.
“As we celebrate the true significance of Easter, I urge you all to rededicate yourselves to Him that holds unquestionable sovereignty over the affairs of man by invoking His power over our country’s affairs. It is time to exercise the powers given to us by the Almighty to chart a new course of prosperity and fulfillment for our country.
“By the grace of the Almighty, I am offering myself to be part of the task of rebuilding Nigeria by seeking your vote into the House of Representatives through the Isoko Federal Constituency. Together, we can build a new and great Nigeria.
“I pray that in this Easter season, our Lord will harken to our supplication and lead our nation back to the path of sustainable development by enthroning a leadership that is empathetic to the deprivations of the people.
“May the resurrected Christ rekindle our spirit of unity and fairness and to lead us back to the path of uplifting by conscientiously choosing the leadership that will bring us to the right path.
“May the blessings of Jesus Christ heal our nation as we march towards 2023.
