Mr Gwottson Fom, member representing Jos South Constituency in the Plateau House of Assembly, has said that Coronavirus presents an opportunity to reassess the nation’s values.
Fom stated this in his Easter message made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Jos.
“I am of high hope that our governments at all levels have learnt obvious lessons from this development: COVID-19 pandemic.
“Government should assess our values by giving adequate attention to matters of high ranking priority.
“Attention must be given especially to health care delivery, security of lives and property and education of our people,” he said.
The lawmaker also said that it was unfortunate that this year’s Easter was being celebrated in the midst of pandemic ravaging the world.
He said that with economic activities crumbled, life seemed static as people were home with majority of them without food and other basic necessities of life.
Fom, however, said that amidst the challenges, there was reassuring grace that the nation would come out stronger.
According to him, Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for the salvation of mankind.
He stressed that by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there was an assurance of our hope.
“I wish to stand on this foundation laid by our Lord God Almighty to wish you my very good people, friends, colleagues, religious leaders, political mentors, kinsmen and family an amazing Easter celebration,” he said.
The lawmaker said that his prayer that the resurrection power of Jesus would quicken mortal bodies into perfect health and shield the people from the pandemic.
He assured that he would contribute his quota in repositioning governmental process for the mutual growth and development of the people.
