Easter: Jonathan Preaches Peace, Love Forgiveness

Says 2022 Easter Should be a moment for sober reflection on the lessons and Christ’s Death and Resurrection

Former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan says citizens of the country should strive to love, forgive and tolerate one another for the attainment of national goals and aspirations.

Dr. Jonathan in his Easter message to Christians which he published via his social media platforms, stated that the season is a time for sober reflection on the essence of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

He said God out of his fountain of love for mankind sent his only son to die for the salvation of all, and that it behoves on people to replicate that gesture by loving and accepting one another.

“Easter reminds us of the boundless love of God who offered His Son Jesus Christ for our salvation. At Easter, we reflect on the triumphant life of Jesus Christ who died for our sins and was raised for our redemption.

“Easter teaches us hope, forgiveness, faith and love. Let us therefore act in these virtues; love our neighbours and be tolerant of one another

“I celebrate with Nigerian christians and others across the world on this year’s Easter. This should be a moment of sober reflection on the many lessons of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“Let us act in faith towards God and our fellow citizens. Let us be guided by hope, pursue peace at all times and work towards resolving our common challenges.

Ours is a victorious heritage; this is the fate of our nation and ourselves. This is the assurance of Easter”, Jonathan added
