The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, has enjoined Christian leaders in Nigeria to always practice what they preach.
The monarch made the call in his Easter message to Christians in Benin.
In a statement issued by the Secretary, Benin Traditional Council (BTC), Frank Irabor, he called on Christians, irrespective of denomination, to use the period of Easter to reflect on the teachings of Jesus Christ and endeavour to emulate Christ in their lives.
“Christian leaders should always practice what they preach in order not to mislead their congregations.
“Christians should extend hands of fellowship to the needy and the less privileged in the society.
“While wishing Christians a Happy Easter celebration, I call on Christians to fervently pray to God to forgive the sins of humanity and bring to an end the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the world,” Oba Ewuare II said.
