Lent: Anambra Gov-elect, Soludo sends message to Nigerians


The Anambra State governor-elect, Prof. Charles Soludo has called on Nigerians to use the Lenten season to remind each other on how to contribute to the development of the country by holding nothing back.

The former CBN governor, who posted on his official Facebook page after participating in the 2022 Ash Wednesday which marks the commencement of 40 days fasting in the Catholic church, expressed delight that the season coincides with the transitioning into his administration.

He also called on Nigerians to eschew evils during the holy season, stressing that there is a need to make the society “better than we met it”.

He said, “For me, it can only be divine that this period coincides with our transitioning into the next administration, reflecting the actual mood required for serious takeoff.

“In the light of our faith in God and humanity, the period of Lent reminds us of the ephemerality of life, and the need to make each day of our existence count.

“As we commence this solemn journey of faith, let’s commit ourselves to the mortification of all things evil. Let’s remind each other of the need to “die empty” – – holding back no good to the benefit of Society.

“May we continue to reflect on the need to leave this Society better than we met it”.
