Many Nigerians on social media have reacted to the Easter greetings sent to Christians by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State.
The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, on Friday, said the government congratulated the Christian faithful on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebrations.
“I rejoice with Christians, especially in Kwara State, on the commemoration of the historic travails and ultimate triumph of Jesus Christ.
“On this occasion and always, I urge the people of our state, and Nigerians as a whole, to reflect on and emulate these time-honoured qualities of the Christ, and I appeal to citizens to join hands with our administration in the efforts to rebuild our dear state to become the regional and national reference point for human capital development and sustainable growth”, he said.

Another commentator, Prince Enoch said “Either you greet or not; my believe is Justice & truth WILL prevail. Just Christ reign forever. Halleluyah.”
Several other comments that have surfaced online further shows the positions of the Christian faithfuls.
