The Vice-President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has today, April 4, encouraged Nigerians to “have great hope that things are going to get better for the country”.
Osinbajo disclosed this to newsmen today during the Easter Sunday service at the Aso Villa Chapel in Abuja.
However, in the statement which was disclosed through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said the Vice President prayed that Nigeria will experience the grace and mercy of God.
The statement was titled, ‘Osinbajo’s Easter Message To Nigerians: All Will Be Well With Our Country’.
“I just want to thank God for our nation, and pray that our nation will experience the grace and mercy of God in so many different ways that we are expecting His grace and mercy. All will be well in Jesus name,” Akande quoted the vice-president as saying.
While wishing Nigerians a Happy Easter celebration, the VP added that the message of Easter is a message of the special and exceeding love and grace of God.
Osinbajo said, “God’s plan for humanity was that Christ will die and will resurrect. The resurrection is evidence of the fact that those who believe would be saved eternally and would live eternal joy and peace with the Almighty. And that promise is open to every single person.
“Whoever you are, that promise is open to you. That is, if you subscribe to that plan, if you accept that Christ died for you and rose again, and that the plan is fulfilled in the resurrection.”
He further stated that the Easter season was one “of great joy because we celebrate the evidence of the plan of God. In some way, God has given us a receipt of our salvation and it’s really exciting.”
