OFFICE OF THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF IMO STATE
The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere has admonished Christians to emulate the unfathomable character of Jesus Christ who suffered and paid the ultimate sacrifice to save mankind at the cross of Calvary.
Prince Madumere made this admonishment yesterday at his country home shortly after “Washing of Feet” ceremony on the eve of Good Friday remembrance in the Chapel of Praise Chapel of Anglican Communion in Achi-Mbieri, Mbaitoli local Government of Imo State.
In his explanation, he said Washing of Feet is one of the practical ways Jesus Christ demonstrated the importance of humility in the life of every Christian, calling on all to have equal regards for fellow human beings irrespective of class or social status. He also described washing of feet and Holy Communion as part of the solemn Christian spiritual ceremony Jesus Christ had urged Christians to perform in remembrance of Him.
Speaking on Good Friday remembrance, Prince Madumere called on Christians to learn from the sufferings and sacrifices of Jesus Christ to ensure that mankind is saved from eternal condemnation.
He said the event calls for sober reflection and therefore called on Nigerians to reach out to those who are facing challenges of life to rekindle their hope by praying, talking and helping them out of some of their immediate problems that bother on basic necessities of life especially the less privileged.
