Nigerians have been asked not to forget the blessings of God upon their country despite mounting challenges confronting them.
To this end, they have been urged to remain steadfast and determined in their effort to eliminate teething national obstacles
Former President Goodluck Jonathan noted  in his Easter message to Nigerians on Twitter, “These are not the best of times for Nigerians and many others around the world because of the global crisis caused by the outbreak of COVID – 19 pandemic, which has disrupted the fate and fortunes of many.
“It has been a season of hardship for some and a moment of fear and despair for others.
“In all these, we must remain steadfast in faith, boundless in hope and obstinate in love for God and humanity.”
The former President admonished Nigerians not to “allow the challenges of this present time to overwhelm the riches of God’s grace and the truth of His love towards us”.
Expressing optimism that “nothing can separate us from the love of God”, Jonathan declared, “Let us continue to live in faith and walk in love so we can conquer all our national challenges.”
“I extend my best wishes to all Christian faithful in Nigeria and around the world as we celebrate this year’s Easter”, Jonathan said.
“It is a moment of thanksgiving as well as an opportunity to reflect on the benefits of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“From Holy Scriptures, we understand that the purpose of Christ’s death on the cross was to redeem humanity from the bondage of sin, establish His love on us and grant us access to eternal life.
“At Easter, our common testimonies are tales of the triumph of life over death, songs of victory over the devil and celebrations of love, mercy and grace”, he added.
