Former governor of Lagos State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu sends an Easter message to Nigerians.
Read his message below:
“As we remember the death of Jesus and celebrate His resurrection, we must never forget that if not for the sacrifice He made for all, there could never have been a celebration and hope for a better future. Such is the message of Easter to all our leaders to make the sacrifices necessary so that our country will be better.
“Given our  abundant natural resources and human capacity, Nigeria has no business with poverty, insecurity and massive unemployment. We must all pray that God will provide Nigeria with leaders who are God-fearing and with the vision and will to embark on the kind of change the country needs.
“Let all men of goodwill,  irrespective of party, religion or creed come together to find a solution to this unending and unconscionable killings and shedding of blood. We can not continue to  dance on the graves of our dead children and compatriots and claim that we were elected to lead them. We lose our credibility and legitimacy if we dilly dally in our collective response to the near genocide taking place in our country. Nigerians deserve better. They deserve peace. They deserve a government that can apply itself to the task at hand.
“I join other leaders and Nigerians who are committed to the search for solutions to our problems and who seek a non-partisan approach to solving problems that affects our fate as a people. May the spirit of Easter nudge us all in that direction of selflessness and service to our motherland.”
