Easter Message: President-Elect Tinubu, Obi, Atiku Preach Hope, Love, Peace  


As  Christians all over the world remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Nigeria’s President-Elect, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential candidates of the Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Peter Obi and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, have all felicitated with Christians in Nigeria, tasking them to imbibe the messages of Peace, Love, Hope, etc, that Christ’s death reflected.

The President-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu  urged Nigerians to reflect on the priceless sacrifice and limitless love of God for mankind at Easter.


The President-elect enjoined Christians across the country to emulate the virtues of Jesus Christ by showing love to neighbours, regardless of tongue, faith and tribe as they celebrate Easter.

He noted that Easter was about renewed hope and redemption, adding that it symbolised the triumph of hope over despair, love over hate and condemnation, and optimism over cynicism.

“Let us embrace this spirit and recommit ourselves to edifying and patriotic pursuits in the interest of our nation.


“I send my best wishes to Christians in Nigeria and all over the world who are celebrating Easter this Sunday.

“As we all enjoy the well-deserved break, I urge every Nigerian to reflect on the priceless sacrifice and limitless love of God for mankind.

“For Christians everywhere, this celebration is in commemoration of Jesus Christ’s life of service and his supreme sacrifice for the salvation of mankind.

“Let us all imbibe the essential message of Christ’s ministry and truly begin to love our fellow Nigerians as we love ourselves,” he said


According to the two-term former governor of Lagos State, we will make faster progress toward the achievement of the peaceful, united, strong, progressive and prosperous country we all desire if we eschew divisive, parochial, ethnic, religious sentiments and rivalries.

He urged Nigerians to begin to live more harmoniously with their compatriots.

Obi urges Nigerians, not to despair but remain hopeful, peaceful


…Felicitates with Muslims during Ramadan

The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has urged Nigerians not to despair in the face of tribulations and provocations because Easter is about hope and promise for all who believe.

He made the appeal in a message to Nigerian Christians celebrating Easter as well as Muslims who are observing the Ramadan fast. His statement was made available to newsmen in Abuja, on Saturday.

Obi who noted that Muslims are in the middle of their 30 days of special prayers and fasting that will culminate in Eid El Fitr said he is praying with them during this solemn period for a great and peaceful Nigeria ahead.

He said, “To our Muslim brothers and sisters who are well into the Ramadan fasting period, which will culminate in the Eid El Fitr, my special greetings and prayers are with you as we look forward to a joyous celebration.

“Given that we are all united as brothers and sisters, and in our trust in the mercies and infinite benevolence of God Almighty, I urge all Nigerians particularly the youths not to despair in the face of many challenges and tribulations we are facing as a country.

“We continue to thank God for all His blessings on Nigeria and pray for a better and New Nigeria where equity, fairness, peace, unity, accountable leadership, and prosperity shall reign.

Obi said in the Easter message said if Jesus our messiah died for us and rose from death to fight for us why should we be hopeless at anything?

“Every religion believes that God our creator is of justice, so why should we as his children not expect it from him?

“The main significance of Easter that the Christendom celebrate this time is that it marks the Resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death by crucifixion.

“The three most significant events in it are the trial of Jesus, the death of Jesus, and finally the resurrection.

“What is the strength here for us, it gives all who believe in Christ the courage and hope that the Lord they serve, worship, and adore is alive and not dead. And that Good Friday must come before Easter Sunday. Meaning that the road to Alleluia is not smooth but it must come.

Obi further said that “Easter is therefore a celebration and festival of hope knowing that our messiah is alive and not dead. Easter gives us hope of eternal life which is what every believer is working for.

“If therefore we know that Easter gives us hope that our savior is alive after dying for our sake, why should we despair.?

“So, fellow Nigerians, dear obidients, of all faith and class, never despair as I pray that the blessings of the resurrection will remain with us in the face of any tribulations because our redeemer is living and active”

Obi wished all Christians a happy cel ebration and pray that the message and blessings of Easter will remain with us.

Ethnicity, Religion not Nigeria’s problem — Atiku Abubakar

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar said ethnicity and religion are not the problems of Nigeria’s development.

The former Vice President stated this in his message, posted on his verified Facebook page on Saturday, commemorating this year’s Easter.

He said, “We must not allow those who seek to divide us to pretend as if our problems are a result of another ethnic or religious group.”

According to Atiku, Easter celebration was a time for deep reflection as it marked the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and his victory over death.

He said, “It is a time to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need.

“It is also a time for all of us — regardless of faith or ethnicity — to come together to pray for the peace of our nation. We must all remain constant in our efforts to promote unity — across all lines — because united, our nation remains stronger, and we can thrive as a people.

“Our shared experiences bring us to the conclusion that no matter what the forces of evil can do, we, as Nigerians, united in doing good, can and shall prevail,” he added.

Atiku urged leaders at all levels to follow the virtues that defined this season – sacrifice, love, and charity – “and come together to help all Nigerians resolve the differences that divide us.”

He said Nigerians must collectively own their problems and collectively find solutions to overcome them.
