The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Easter to rekindle their hope and draw strength from God.

This, the party said, was necessary to overcome the challenges of live, particularly as the nation and the world in general battle the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.

In an Easter message signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party stressed that Easter, which marks the triumphant resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the death, presents a divine indication that the nation and indeed humanity will definitely triumph over the pandemic.

It further urged Nigerians not to be overcome with fear or pushed to the point of resigning to despondency following the excruciating social and economic challenges occasioned by the pandemic, but to build themselves up spiritually anchoring their hope in God.

The party encouraged Nigerians to draw strength from the suffering of Jesus Christ and his resurrection on Easter which presents an eternal assurance of the triumph of life over death, light over darkness and joy over despondency.

The PDP further called on Nigerians to use the period to rekindle their brotherly love for one another as well as unite in the collective effort to check the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

“Our party calls on political, religious and community leaders at all levels to redouble their efforts in enlightening the people and in providing palliatives for vulnerable Nigerians, particularly the poor masses in the informal sector, whose daily means of survival in the streets, markets, workshops, factories and farms have been crippled by the pandemic.

“The PDP commends our health workers and others professionals, who are on harm’s way, for their sacrifices at this critical time while urging Nigerians to continue to adhere to social distancing and personal hygiene directives in the overall effort to defeat COVID-19 in our country”, the statement added.

The party prayed for the nation and wished Nigerians very special Easter celebrations.
