Revitalizing Hope: Peter Obi encourages Nigerians to embrace Easter's triumph for a renewed Nigeria

Mr. Peter Obi

Presidential hopeful, Mr. Peter Obi, representing the Labour Party in the 2023 elections, calls on Christians to draw inspiration from the triumph of Easter, symbolizing Jesus Christ's victory over death, to envision a revitalized Nigeria.

Obi emphasizes that this victory serves as a beacon of hope, signaling the potential for a transformed Nigeria, resilient in the face of current challenges, and ultimately celebrating a collective triumph.

Writing on his X handle, the former Anambra state governor said, "I join the global community of Christians, especially Christians in Nigeria, in celebrating Easter - the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"This great occasion brings to an end, the Christian Lenten season of fasting, prayers, and alms giving, and ushers us into the season of glory and victory over death.

"For us in Nigeria, this very significant celebration holds vital promises of victory over our present myriads of challenges, if we do not despair.

"Our dear nation has continued to stagger under the heavy weight of high insecurity, soaring hunger and poverty, ballooning debts, galloping inflation, and mindless corruption that has pervaded every part of our national existence.

"Just as our Lord Jesus, who made very painful sacrifices for the salvation of the world, which today we celebrate His glorious resurrection, we all must continue to labour, in unity, for the good of our nation, knowing that our labours will not be in vain.

"I, therefore, call on all Christians, in the spirit of Easter, to continue to pray for God's intervention in our dear nation, so that even as we labour, as humans, for the sake of our nation, God will crown our efforts with success, and make the New Nigeria even more possible, beyond our human efforts.

"I wish everyone a very Happy Easter celebration.
