Nigeria is on the path of resurrection, progress -VP

Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has assured Nigerians that Nigeria was on the path of resurrection and progress,

He also expressed optimism that Nigeria will overcome its challenges and become a great nation.

The Vice President stated this on Sunday, while addressing Journalists after attending a church service on Sunday at the Aso Villa chapel in Abuja.

The service was in commemoration of this year’s Easter celebration.

The Vice President said that under the current administration, a lot is being achieved and the country is on the path of resurrection.

First, my message is that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is also a strong and powerful message to the nation�that our nation is on the path of resurrection, the path of progress, on the path of elevation.

We are moving out of our challenges and we are going to a place of greater hope, peace and prosperity and abundance for all of us, he said.

The Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo, who delivered a sermon on: The Temporary Hour of Darkness, also gave the assurance that Nigeria is going to rise again.

He said that the resurrection of Christ signified that darkness could only reign but for a while.

Darkness only reigns for a while, no matter the problem we are facing, just as Jesus only laid in the grave for three days, all these will be over, he said.

He called on all Nigerians to emulate the life of Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for the salvation of mankind.

He said: In terms of sacrifice, we have to emulate the life of Jesus Christ. He sacrificed for mankind. And we are liberated and celebrating because he paid the sacrifice.

We are all called to do our role in giving that sacrifice that will bring the liberation and the greatness of our nation.
