Easter: I Worked Hard to Meet Nigerians Expectations - Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday urged all Nigerians to keep faith in his administration’s commitment and ability to change the Nigerian story for good.

Buhari made the appeal in his Easter message made available to journalists.
He said he was
determined to continue with the fight against terrorism and insurgency; sustain the peace in the Niger Delta and restore peace and stability in other parts of the country.
The President however urged Nigerians to live in peace because without peace, no meaningful and sustainable development can take place.

He said, “I congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the celebration of this year’s Easter.I rejoice with you on this historic occasion signifying the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, redemption over condemnation, and hope over despair.

“The commemoration of this special season in Christianity, is always preceded by fasting, piety, humility, penance and prayers of intercession in the build up to the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, an event which reunited man with his Creator.

“The message of Easter is filled with themes of love, faith, sacrifice, dedication, commitment, fulfilment of prophecy, hope, expectation and victory, as espoused in the Scriptures and the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus Christ.

“As we celebrate yet another Easter, I urge all Nigerians to live peacefully with one another and do their utmost to make Nigeria a beautiful place to reside.”

He also said he has worked hard to meet with Nigerians expectation.
