The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has enumerated three vital values he believes could be drawn from the death of Jesus Christ and which should help all make a fresh start on life.
In a brief Easter Message he issued on Friday, the Speaker said in “our due reflection on the purpose of Easter”, we should also aspire to emulate the vital lesson Easter presents, praying that;

  • The death of Christ would symbolise the end of past grievances
  • His burial represent the burialof all things retrogressive, and
  • His resurrection would serve as the ideal example of our commitment to serve in truth, love and peace.

On behalf of MPs, the Board and Staff of the Parliamentary Service, he wished all a Happy Easter.

Below is Speaker Bagbin’s Easter Message in full

The season of Easter is a reminder of the sacrifice of Christ’s body on the cross of Calvary. As the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ mark the greatest pillar of the Christian faith, we, as Christians, are comforted with the knowledge of the gift of salvation.

With the existence of Christianity mirrored by the demonstration of Jesus’ love even at the hour of His death and the symbolic testament of His awe-inspiring altruistic act of service for humanity, may we be guided by this selfless gesture of love during this period.

In our due reflection on the purpose of Easter, let us also aspire to emulate the didactic lesson that this season presents in the embodiment of three vital values:

May the death of Christ symbolise the end of past grievances;

May His burial depict the interment of all things retrogressive, and may His resurrection epitomise our commitment to serve in truth, love and peace.

On behalf of the Members of Parliament, the Board and Staff of the Parliamentary Service,

I wish you all a HAPPY EASTER.
