Senate President Ahmad Lawan has rejoiced with Christians in the country on the celebration of the Easter festivities.
In a message, he was quoted as saying, “I heartily felicitate Nigerians, particularly the Christians, as they join their brethren across the world in celebrating Easter, the season of the remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“Easter marks the trial, sacrifice, victory and completion of the divine mandate of the author of the Christian faith.
“As we celebrate the unique occasion, let us keep in mind the significance of the season, which is the perfect demonstration of sacrificial love to others.
“As it ended in triumph, the season should also rekindle our hope of victory over personal and communal challenges.
“Therefore, the triumph of Christ should encourage all people of faith to be hopeful of victory against trials and challenges, whether as individuals or as a nation.
“This occasion powerfully reminds us that no challenge is insurmountable.
“The Senate President also said, “I assure us that the Government will continue to work for the realisation of the dreams of Nigerians of enduring national peace, unity and progress.
“The National Assembly will also continue to provide the necessary Legislative interventions to support every effort made to take Nigeria out of the current insecurity and economic challenges.
“The Ninth National Assembly is pursuing its Legislative Agenda, which we designed to galvanise national efforts against our challenges. May the lessons and joy of Easter endure in the lives of the faithful.”
