Easter: National leaders must look at the example of Christ

NATIONAL Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad is calling on all Fijians to remember the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ this Easter.
“It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices made for us and a time to take notice of our fellow Fijians who are still suffering,” he said.
Mr Prasad said while most Fijians might be able to find the comfort of families and friends, it was important to also remember all those that were helplessly suffering from economic or physical conditions.
“This Easter, we must embrace the values of compassion and love, values that Jesus Christ embodied.”
He has also called upon all people in leadership positions to reflect on the selfless and compassionate values of Jesus Christ.
“All leaders must look at the example that Christ set as he had foregone comfort and riches to serve the people. As leaders, we must reflect and assess our own positions and ask ourselves if we are properly serving the people who elected us to be their leaders.”
