The former Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, has urged Nigerians and Ekiti people to rededicate themselves to the virtue of love which is the entire essence of creation and human existence.
Mr. Oni, in a Valentine’s Day message to the people of Ekiti, urged them to build a community of love and purpose, where selfless sacrifice would be the propelling hallmark of development.
The PDP chieftain used the message titled “Let us build a community of love and sacrifice’ to also advise the people to rededicate themselves to love, which he said could address the state’s challenges and unlock its limitless possibilities.
He wished Ekiti people “Happy Valentine”, saying “On this special occasion of Valentine and as we present our loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and such other lovely gifts, let us rededicate ourselves to the virtue of love which is the entire essence of creation and human existence.
“Love is fellowship building, love is sacrifice, love is compassion, and love is everything that can help us to address our challenges, overcome our fault-lines and unlock our limitless possibilities as a people.
“Let our thinking, commitment and activities be guided by love, let our relationship and dedication to duties be nurtured by love, and above all, we must keep loving one another because love is from God.
“This is the time to build a community of love and purpose, where selfless sacrifice shall be the propelling hallmark of our development.”
