He said this would go a long way to help the young ones to know about God early in their life as they pursue their academic dreams.

Akanmu urged Christians to have faith in the power that resurrected Jesus Christ from the dead, live patiently and trust in God despite their plights. "People get together on Easter just to celebrate the resurrection day how he rose up from the dead and now he's alive".

"As we celebrate this Easter, let us honour Christ by showing love to humanity, by helping those in need, praying for the faint hearted and encouraging those passing through difficulties".

Easter Sunday represents the sacrifice Jesus made to allow us to live an eternal life connected to God, to live in his glory for all of the days to come.

Most Rev. Boafo said God calls for newness in every individual life and that doing away with corruption, immorality, laziness any negativity would result in a new character that would make the resurrection of Christ meaningful.

Or you at the first: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas.

He urged the congregation to always do well, and serve Jesus, the King of Kings.

"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins".

The Presiding Bishop of Methodist Church Ghana Most Reverend, Paul K. Boafo who was elected at the 10 biennial conference previous year, in his sermon on the theme, " Christ is risen, bringing newness into our lives", explained that every Christian gathering on Easter Sunday comes the words "Jesus our Lord is risen".

However, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has felicitated with Nigerians across the country on the Easter celebration, and charged the Federal Government to ensure safety of lives, property and free movement of people.

The cleric said that Nigerians would want to see that this noble promise is translated into action in the most patriotic way.
