Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar enjoins Nigerians to be strong amidst current difficulties, knowing full well that better days would soon come; more so that there is hardly a testimony without a test and a crown without a cross.
In an Easter message released in Abuja by the Atiku Media Office, the Turaki Adamawa says that the message of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection is a perfect analogy for the current situation in Nigeria today.
“The significance of the celebration of Easter, demonstrates that there is never an indomitable situation that hope, good team-spirit and hard work cannot overcome.”
The former Vice President thus encourages his fellow compatriots not to lose hope, particularly as the ruling APC government continues to work assiduously in finding long term solutions to the country’s hydra-headed problems.
“Things may seem rough and tough today, but it is only for a while. Nigeria will surely rise again in line with the spirit and tenets of Easter.”
The Turaki Adamawa urges Nigerian leaders at all levels to emulate the great sacrifice that was the life of Jesus Christ, by working to ensure that they do everything within their powers to lift majority of Nigerians out of poverty into prosperity.
