Dogara Felicitates with Christians at Easter
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has felicitated with Christian faithfuls on the occasion of Easter.
In a statement issued by his spokesman, Mr. Turaki Hassan, Dogara called on Christians to use the Easter period to pray for the restoration of peace and economic stability in the nation.
He said Easter symbolises sacrifice and service to God and country and urged Nigerians to emulate the life of Jesus Christ who laid down his life for mankind.
In like manner, the Speaker said Nigerians should be their brothers’ keepers and make necessary sacrifices for their fellow country men and women.
“Times are hard, our country is going through difficult times occasioned by economic downturn. Our contemporary challenges require that we persevere in our prayers for leaders at all levels and the country for divine wisdom to enable us surmount them.”
“This time calls for more patience, sacrifice, prayers and a renewed hope in the Nigerian nation. We have passed through even more difficult situations before, and this too shall pass away as long as we remain committed to bringing the needed change, and steadfast in our prayers for leaders and the country,” the Speaker stated.
He said the challenges facing the country are temporary as the present administration is committed to bringing succour to the populace.
