The Caretaker Chairman of Oorelope local government area, Hon Yaqub Adesola, has urged Oyo residents to ensure continuous practice of all the lessons of this Easter season as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
The local government boss who made this known in a statement he personally signed and made available to news men on Monday through his information officer, noted that the essence of Easter as exemplified by Jesus Christ was about true love and compassion for humanity regardless of color, tribe and religion.
Hon Adesola urged residents not to just celebrate the festivity as a mere annual event but to reflect on the essence of the celebration and apply lessons learned into practical daily lives stressing that the absence of love and compassion for one another was the bane of greed, selfishness and hate around the world.
Hon. Adesola Yaqub popularly called Tasoolo, pleaded with the indigenes of Oorelope communities to intensify their supplication to God noting that there’s nothing beyond the control of God.
Hon Yaqub however assured that COVID-19 will make the world a better place after its been defeated adding that people should eschew all forms of personal differences during this challenging times by showing compassion to the less privileged members of the communities.
Hon Adesola expressed his appreciation to God for the good health and quick recovery granted to the executive governor of Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde, who in the face of threat to life by the dreaded coronavirus came back stronger and healthier.
He said that strategic developmental plans and projects are already on the table but assured that compliance with social distancing and particularly the stay at home order have impeded the pace of implementation and execution in the local government.
