The Peoples Democrati Party (PDP) has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of Easter to buoy up their hope despite the challenges they face as a result of the current misrule in the country.
The party, in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that just as the triumphant resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the death on the cross dispelled the darkness that covered the earth, “so shall our nation overcome all her challenges that appeared to have taken hold of our economic, social and political life.”
“Indeed, Easter, which underpins God’s salvation to mankind, also our reinforces our collective faith that our nation will surely come out of the woods and take back her pride of place in the comity of Nations,” PDP said .
The party also noted that “God, in His infinite mercy, blessed our nation with abundant natural and human resources,” adding that “Nigerians should not be plagued with economic hardship, violence and impunity as being witnessed today.”
The PDP therefore charged Nigerians not to despair but take the opportunity of the occasion of Easter to rekindle their hope, remain prayerful and redouble their trust in God in their collective effort to return our nation to a peaceful and virile society of free, happy and prosperous citizens.
The PDP also urged Nigerians to show love by reaching out and supporting one another, especially, those who are hurting from one calamity or the other, at this critical time.
The party wished all Nigerians a happy Easter celebration.
