President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday, April 4, 2015 urged Nigerians to be willing to make sacrifices for the greater good of the country.
The President’s call was contained in his Easter message, issued via a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati.
While expressing happiness that Nigerians remained peaceful during the conduct of the presidential elections, President Jonathan expressed optimism that the same will be recorded in the governorship election.
He said: “This year’s celebration of Easter is taking place at a period of very critical national choices and decisions, during which we must all be prepared and willing to make sacrifices for greater unity, peace, political stability and progress in our beloved country.
“We must therefore seize the opportunity of the Easter holiday to reflect deeply on what more we need to do as a people, to ensure that the political process in which we are currently engaged is successfully concluded and that our beloved country, Nigeria continues to move towards a better future for all of its citizens.
“Happily, we have already successfully scaled the hurdle of the presidential and national assembly elections.
“I am quite hopeful that the gubernatorial and state assembly elections will also be conducted peacefully.
“To the glory and pride of our fatherland, our collective actions since March 28 have assured the world that the democratic spirit is alive and well in our nation.”
