The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has charged Ghanaians to learn from the moral of Easter celebrations and sacrifice for the greater good of the country.
In a press statement available to ClassFMOnline.com, the NPP said: “…The important lesson is that, we need to be prepared to make sacrifices as we collectively seek to tackle the challenges confronting our socio-economic development, so that we can build a real society of equal opportunities and prosperity for this and the next generation.”
Friday April 14 is Good Friday, which marks the death of Jesus, and Sunday, April 16 is observed as Resurrection Sunday.
Ahead of the festivities the party has also cautioned against excessive merrymaking.

EASTER SHOULD REKINDLE SPIRIT OF SACRIFICE IN GHANAIANS
The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the rank and file of the party join Christians all over the world, especially our brethren in Ghana, in marking this year’s Easter.
On this sacred occasion, which marks the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, we want to urge all believers and Ghanaians in general, to reflect soberly on the important sacrifice Jesus Christ made for humanity.
The resurrection of Jesus, which is the triumphant victory for Christians, offers a very important lesson for all and sundry.
We believe, perhaps, the important lesson is that, we need to be prepared to make sacrifices as we collectively seek to tackle the challenges confronting our socio-economic development, so that we can build a real society of equal opportunities and prosperity for this and the next generation.
While we urge all believers to use the occasion to renew and strengthen their faith in God and continue to pray for the progress of Ghana, we want to caution against excesses in the celebrations, which often leave us with regrets of accidents and other unfortunate occurrences.
We wish all Ghanaians a Happy Easter, and may God bless our dear country Ghana.
