Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential Candidate in the 2023 general election, has delivered a message of hope and redemption to prisoners, urging them not to view themselves as isolated or devoid of hope.

 

Speaking during the Easter mass at the Correctional Center in Onitsha, Anambra State, Obi emphasized that in Nigeria, everyone faces metaphorical imprisonment, yearning for divine intervention for liberation and salvation.

Addressing the inmates, Obi drew parallels from the day’s scripture readings, particularly focusing on the transformation of Mary Magdalene, who, despite her past, became the first witness to the resurrected Christ.

 

 

He highlighted her journey from a life of sin to redemption, emphasizing that being incarcerated does not signify the end of life.

Instead, he encouraged the prisoners to see their time in prison as an opportunity for correction and spiritual renewal, enabling them to experience salvation even before those considered “free.”

The Easter mass, presided over by the Archbishop of Onitsha Catholic Archdiocese, His Grace Valerie Okeke, saw participation from approximately 12 other priests. In his homily, Archbishop Okeke echoed Obi’s sentiments, emphasizing the transformative power of faith and redemption. He cited Mary Magdalene’s remarkable transformation as a testament to the potential for greatness and renewal, even for those within the confines of the Correctional Center.

 

The celebration witnessed joyous dancing and expressions of gratitude from the inmates, who showcased their cultural diversity while chanting praises for Obi, whom they hailed as a friend and father figure. Notably, Obi has maintained a tradition of celebrating Easter with prisoners since his tenure as Governor of Anambra State from 2006 to 2014.

 

Ejes Gist News understands that the Easter gathering served as a poignant reminder of the significance of hope, faith, and the potential for redemption, transcending the confines of physical captivity.
