President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Ahmad Lawan and some eminent Nigerians on Thursday felicitated with Christians on this year’s Easter celebration.
In a statement on Thursday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President urged Nigerian to show love and appreciate one another.
He recalled how subdued the celebration was a year ago, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequently restrictions.
Showing appreciation to the citizens for complying with his administration’s guidelines to reduce the number of Coronavirus infections across the country, President Buhari said: “I thank Nigerians who have religiously adhered to various interventions to curb the spread of COVID-19, including regular hand washing, safe distancing, wearing of face masks, and embrace of vaccination.
We are united in our belief that if we do the right things, take the right decisions and act responsibly, the pandemic, like others before it, will no longer be a threat.”
Lawan, in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media), Ola Awoniyi, noted that Easter is one of the most important events in the Christian calendar for celebrating the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“When we emulate Christ, there will be peace and love rather than the politically induced senseless killings and general insecurity in the land. Do or die has become the political song of our leaders.
Rather than allow Christ to anoint them for leadership roles, political leaders are forcing themselves on the people, forgetting that only God anoints leaders,” the statement said.
