The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, has enjoined Christians to imbibe and exhibit the qualities and virtues of Jesus Christ in their daily living and dealings with others.
The monarch; in a statement signed and issued on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Desmond Agbama, said that should people exhibit those qualities enumerated above, they would pave way for a better society.
Oba Ewuare II while felicitating with the entire Christian community as they celebrate Easter, urged them to see the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ as symbols of the Christian faith.
He admonished Christians to be guided by the principles, gospel and the commandments of Jesus Christ at all times.
The Benin monarch urged Christians to endeavour to live harmoniously with one another, irrespective of religion, tribe or race.
He, however, called on Christian leaders and their congregation to pray for the unity, peace and progress of Benin kingdom, Edo and Nigeria in general. (NAN)
