The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has offered his heartfelt felicitations to Christians in Nigeria as they join their brethren across the world in remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
As they mark this great occasion of Easter, Lawan urged the Christian faithful to reflect on the season’s significance.
The Senate President said just as they celebrate Easter for Jesus’ victory over death on the cross and his resurrection that rekindles the hope of eternal life, they should also pray for the peace and prosperity of Nigeria.
He said the occasion should bolster the hope of their nation’s triumph over her current challenges of nation-building and the imminence of better days.
He also urged all Nigerians, particularly religious leaders and clerics, to pray for a peaceful political transition in Nigeria.
Lawan also called for prayers for God’s blessings and guidance for the incoming governments at the national and state levels, including the soon-to-be inaugurated 10th National Assembly and state Houses of Assembly.
