Imo State former Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere has admonished Christians to learn and imbibe the spirit of sacrifice from the Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The former Deputy Governor made the call on Friday as Christians mark good Friday in commemoration of the death of Our Lord Jesus Christ Heralding his resurrection.

He said Forgiveness, selflessness, sacrifices and love of the Lord Jesus Christ should serve as a lesson to all and sundry, saying that "if we want to live, we must first lose our lives for others".

The statement issued by his Adviser, Media & Publicity, Uche Onwuchekwa reads; "Today, we commemorate the ultimate sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ paid on the cross of Calvary for us all to be reconciled unto the Father that we may have life and have it in abundance.

"We require leaders who are ready to make sacrifices like our Lord Jesus Christ to move our state and the country forward. We need followers as well who can also make sacrifices to shun money politics and elect leaders who are God fearing and have the interest of the people at home.

"For this season of forgiveness, I urge us to forgive one another, eschew bitterness and embrace one another for  peace to reign. 

"Imo State and other parts of the country are bleeding as our land has become a Golgotha where no one is safe, including innocent women and children.

"We must come to terms with the reality of understanding the fact that there must be cause of frustration, disenchantment and preparedness to go go suicide mission by our people. We must find a way to resolve them. 

"I also admonish our people who may have been angered to the point of taking up arms against our people to remember that God has brought us together for a reason and we must always be ready to let go for peace and tranquility otherwise, progress and development will elude us. Human Life is sacred and must not wasted like that of rats and other lower animals.
