President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday in his Easter message reiterated his administration’s determination to continue with the “fight against terrorism and insurgency; sustain the peace in the Niger Delta through engagements with stakeholders; and restore peace and stability in other parts of the country, according to a report in the Guardian.”
Buhari, while rejoicing with Christian faithful on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration, said Christ’s resurrection signifies, “the triumph of light over darkness, redemption over condemnation and hope over despair.
According to the President: “It is in our collective interest to live in peace because without peace, no meaningful and sustainable development can take place,” adding that “Lack of peace in one part affects in one way or the other, all parts of the country. Our people must rediscover the values of peaceful co-existence, social justice, religious tolerance, dignity of labour and patriotism.”
Buhari, who congratulated Christians on the celebration, said his administration in the last two years has worked hard to meet the expectations of Nigerians by improving security, especially in the North East, sustaining the campaign against corruption, as well as, taken steps to revitalise the economy.
