“The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ should always remind us of the ultimate price God paid for our sins.
“While we merry and rejoice over his resurrection, let’s also ponder over the need to stand together as a people to shun all means of violence and give peace a chance, putting into consideration the adverse effect of insecurity to the development of our zone, state and country.”
The outgoing senator, also used the occasion to appreciate his constituents for standing by him throughout his brief stay in the Red Chamber.
