In a heartwarming gesture of solidarity and compassion, Labour Party Presidential Candidate for the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, delivered an uplifting message of hope and redemption to prisoners during an Easter mass held at the Correctional Center in Onitsha, Anambra State.

Addressing the inmates gathered for the special Easter service, Obi urged them not to succumb to feelings of isolation or despair, emphasizing that everyone in Nigeria, in one way or another, is imprisoned by the challenges facing the nation and seeks solace in the pursuit of freedom and redemption.

Drawing inspiration from the biblical narrative of Mary Magdalene, who experienced a profound transformation from a life of sin to becoming a revered disciple of Christ, Obi highlighted the universal theme of redemption and the possibility of personal transformation, even within the confines of a correctional facility.

"In the story of Mary Magdalene, we witness a powerful testament to the potential for renewal and redemption," Obi remarked, underscoring the transformative power of faith and spiritual awakening. "Being in prison does not define your worth or destiny. It is an opportunity for correction and spiritual growth, leading to salvation and a new beginning."

The Easter mass, presided over by Archbishop Valerie Okeke of the Onitsha Catholic Archdiocese, provided a poignant backdrop for reflection and spiritual renewal, as inmates gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and embrace the promise of hope and renewal.

Addressing the inmates during his homily, Archbishop Okeke echoed Obi's sentiments, highlighting the parallels between Mary Magdalene's journey of redemption and the potential for personal growth and societal reintegration among the incarcerated.

The Easter celebration at the Correctional Center, a tradition initiated by Obi during his tenure as Governor of Anambra State from 2006 to 2014, was marked by joyful expressions of cultural diversity and communal solidarity, as inmates participated in traditional dances and expressed gratitude for Obi's unwavering support and paternal guidance.

As the Easter festivities concluded, echoes of praise and gratitude reverberated throughout the Correctional Center, serving as a testament to the enduring impact of compassion, empathy, and the transformative power of faith in the lives of those seeking redemption and renewal, both within prison walls and beyond.
