I felicitate with our Christian brothers and sisters in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and all over Nigeria on this commemoration of Easter 2022.
This is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ, and the promise of hope and glory in him. It is a reminder of the renewal and victory we have in Jesus; God’s ability to supernaturally turn things around, hopelessness into hope, give abundant joy and make a way where there appears to be no way.
It may seem like there is not much to celebrate because the world, not just Nigeria, is faced with so much – unrest, insecurity, rising cost of goods and services, higher inflation rates amongst others. In spite of it all, we must continue to do our best to arrest the situation, upholding justice and fairness, while praying for God’s intervention in all our affairs.
In addition, we must not lose sight of the things that are working well in our favour, building on the positive, and safeguarding our commonwealth.
Jesus, through his life exemplified giving of oneself, sacrificial service and consideration for others. As individuals, we must find opportunities, daily, to extend the compassion, kindness and brotherliness that Jesus teaches to those around us.
Thus, I wish you Happy Easter, renewed hope, and the blessings of the resurrection.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu, OON
