The President–elect, General Muhammadu Buhari has called on all Nigerians to embrace peace this Easter and celebrate our nation’s rebirth as they commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In an Easter message to Nigerians and the Christian world, personally signed by him, in-coming Nigeria’s leader, urged all citizens of Nigeria to unite and use the season of Easter to celebrate both the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the rebirth of the Nigerian nation.
He said that having overcome the anxiety and fear that tended to overshadow the efforts and commitments towards free and peaceful Presidential and National Assembly elections, it was time for the citizens to move forward in the spirit of the resurrection to rebuild the country with the values of peace and love for one another.
“Our Country depends on you – the Nigerian people to make Nigeria safe for all citizens and foreigners alike. I pledge that our administration shall strengthen all national institutions to promote harmony and national unity. As we do our best to heal our land, God, the most powerful will be on our side to rescue Nigeria from corruption, evil and anti-democratic forces that are pulling Nigeria down.”
