Easter: President-Elect, Bola Tinubu Preaches Renewed Hope, Redemption
Nigeria’s President-Elect, Bola Tinubu has rejoiced with Christians on the occasion of the Easter celebration.
In his Easter message posted on his official Twitter handle on Sunday, Tinubu called on Nigerians to “reflect on the priceless sacrifice and limitless love of God for mankind.”
According to him, “Easter is about renewed hope and redemption. It symbolises 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.”
The former Lagos State governor also urged citizens to use the opportunity of the season to love one another regardless of their faith, tongue, or tribe.
He said as the celebration goes on, Nigerians should remember it is an obligation as God’s children to exhibit the virtue of love.
“As we celebrate, let us also remember our obligation, as God’s children, to love our neighbour, regardless of tongue, faith, and tribe.
“For Christians everywhere, this celebration is in commemoration of Jesus Christ’s life of service and his supreme sacrifice for the salvation of mankind. And as we observe Easter this year, let us all imbibe the essential message of Christ’s ministry and truly begin to love our fellow Nigerians as we love ourselves,” Tinubu stated.
