“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.
