Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has asked Nigerians not to despair as things are bound to look better for the nation with time.
Osinbajo, who spoke on the sideline of the Easter Sunday service at the Aso Rock Chapel at the State House, Abuja told Nigerians to have great hope that things are going to get better for the country.
According to him, “I just want to thank God for our nation, and pray that our nation will experience the grace and mercy of God in so many different ways that we are expecting His grace and mercy. All will be well in Jesus’ name.”
While wishing Nigerians a Happy Easter celebration, the VP added that the message of Easter is a message of the special and exceeding love and grace of God.
He said: “God’s plan for humanity was that Christ will die and will resurrect. The resurrection is evidence of the fact that those who believe would be saved eternally and would live eternal joy and peace with the Almighty. And that promise is open to every single person.
“Whoever you are, that promise is open to you. That is, if you subscribe to that plan if you accept that Christ died for you and rose again and that the plan is fulfilled in the resurrection.”
Osinbajo further stressed that the Easter season is one “of great joy because we celebrate the evidence of the plan of God. In some way, God has given us a receipt of our salvation and it’s really exciting”.
