I rejoice with our Christian brothers and sisters as nicely as all Nigerians on the event of the celebration of this year’s Easter.

This year’s commemoration of Easter comes amid the grip with which Covid-19 has held the whole world.

Unprecedented in dwelling memory, majority of Christians have located themselves marking Easter in a subdued manner, away from the common congregation in churches. This is uncommon and very unfortunate.

However, I want to enjoin our Christian compatriots to re-light their trust in Christ who overcame persecution, sufferings and displayed endurance, steadfastness and above all piety.

Jesus Christ represented man’s capability to face up to brief pains in the hope of eternal glory.

I urge you to imbibe and stay the values of humility, discipline, perseverance, sacrifice and obedience which Jesus Christ established all through His continue to be on earth.

There is no higher probability than now for all Christians in particular, and Nigerians in general, to stay devoted and hopeful that with intensified prayers backed through non-public and collective responsibility, the country shall pull thru this most hard trial.

I have no doubt that if all stakeholders – people and businesses – play their section to the fullest as counseled via our scientists and scientific specialists in confronting Covid-19, the inherent resilience and willpower of our humans will allow us to pull through.

As I mentioned in my national broadcast on Sunday, March 29, 2020, for the reason that there is presently no recognised vaccine in opposition to the virus, “the great and most environment friendly way to keep away from getting infected is via normal hygiene and sanitary practices as properly as social distancing.”

May I use this possibility to commend the encouraging containment and ameliorating techniques put in area with the aid of contributors of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19.

I am very a lot conscious of the non-public and collective inconveniences suffered via our humans due to measures such as limit of actions and closure of enterprise premises. Being “a rely of existence and death,” these sacrifices are in everybody’s activity to store our country from calamity.

The welfare of our humans is paramount. Accordingly, the most economically inclined in our communities will proceed to be uppermost in our plans, and efforts will be made to provide them with fundamental capacity of survival.

While we see the Covid-19 pandemic as a world challenge, this administration is no longer oblivious of the steady hazard posed to our national protection via terrorists and insurgents. They may additionally take this chance to perpetrate attacks. But our armed forces and different protection and talent services will stay vigilant and proceed to include these threats and consolidate efforts to eradicate them completely.

As we mark this year’s Easter, something the circumstances, I inspire you to make the most of the situation, and to preserve safe.

I wish you all a Happy Easter.

Muhammadu Buhari

President, Federal Republic of Nigeria
