Catholic Archbishop reveals how to end ritual killings, mass migration in Nigeria

The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Adewale Martins, has harped on the need for the three tiers of government to create more jobs for the teeming youths to dissuade them from engaging in ritual killings and other social vices.

As Christians all over the world celebrate Easter, which is the commemoration of the resurrection of Christ and his victory over death, wife of Ondo State Governor, Her Excellency Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, joined the congregation of Chapel of Grace, Government House, Alagbaka Akure in a Holy Eucharistic service to mark the festival.

Speaking during the service, Mrs Akeredolu expressed her joy over Christ’s victory over death, with repeated thunderous Alleluia chorus and the popular Christians’ confession, “Christ is Risen”.

The sunshine state First Lady used the opportunity to reassure the good people of Ondo state of the relentless commitment of the Akeredolu-led administration in the state to deliver more dividends of democracy to the people.

In her words, “It gladdens my heart that the people are seeing what is happening in Ondo state. You know change takes a long time to happen. When we talk about graduate unemployment, for you to create employment opportunities, you need to have strategies, you need to plan, and these things don’t just happen overnight, but I’m very excited that just in about two years, things are really happening.

“Anybody who is not aware that industrial revolution is taking place in Ondo state as I speak, should go to Ore and see for themselves. Those are the industries that will gainfully employ your children.

I plead with you to exercise patience with Arakunrin, more will come. This is not Social Media, Print or electronic media advertisement. It is real! Go to Ore and see what is happening.”

Earlier in her remarks, the regent of Aaye community, HRH Taiwo Oyebola Agbona, who led the chiefs and the people of Aaye community in Ifedore LGA to a special thanksgiving, appreciated the Governor of Ondo State for his giant strides in the state, particularly in the area of industrialization and road infrastructure, and appealed to him to give attention to the roads in Aaye community.

In his homily, the guest preacher, Evang. Madu Ihekoronye, enjoined Christians to always emulate Christ and also take advantage of the message of Easter and make the world a better place to live.

For a better society
