President Muhammadu Buhari has again urged Nigerians to keep faith with his government’s ability to change the “Nigerian story”.

In his Easter message, the president Saturday, the president said his administration was determined “as never before to continue with the fight against terrorism and insurgency; sustain the peace in the Niger Delta; and restore peace and stability in other parts of the country.”

“I enjoin all Nigerians to keep faith in the determination and ability of this administration to change the Nigerian story for the good of all,” Mr. Buhari said in a statement he signed.

Read his full statement:

I congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the celebration of this year’s Easter.

I rejoice with you on this historic occasion signifying the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, redemption over condemnation, and hope over despair.

The commemoration of this special season in Christianity, is always preceded by fasting, piety, humility, penance and prayers of intercession in the build up to the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, an event which reunited man with his Creator.

The message of Easter is filled with themes of love, faith, sacrifice, dedication, commitment, fulfilment of prophecy, hope, expectation and victory, as espoused in the Scriptures and the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus Christ.

As we celebrate yet another Easter, I urge all Nigerians to live peacefully with one another and do their utmost to make Nigeria a beautiful place to reside.

In the almost two years of this administration, we have worked hard to meet the expectations of Nigerians by improving security, especially in the North-East, sustaining the campaign against corruption and have taken steps to revitalize the economy.

We are determined as never before 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.

It is in our collective interest to live in peace because without peace, no meaningful and sustainable development can take place. 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.

I enjoin all Nigerians to keep faith in the determination and ability of this administration to change the Nigerian story for the good of all.

I wish all Nigerians happy Easter celebrations.

MUHAMMADU BUHARI

    Thank you very much My wonderful President. I wish you a healthy living and more grease to your anti-graft elbow. I am confident in your leadership of the country, and I know that by 20123 when you would have completed your full tenure, the Nigerian Story would be rewritten in the moral journal of the world.

      Even the blind can see that Buhari has failed and the deaf can hear it loud and clear!

        Man, you made me laugh, haven’t had a good laugh for a while

    • Otile

      Don’t call him your wonderful president. Imam has told you that he belongs to nobody. Ka ji ko?

  • Curseless

    Keep faith with who? With what?…Pls shut up your mouth and stop making people angrier. Repair the economy you have scattered and the Jobs that have been lost all because of you and your useless policies. Since you came back from London your common sense has not told you that you should begin to build a fully equipped hospital in Nigeria. 7 years from now (If Nigeria survives), the Nigerian President will sure still have to fly to London to treat Ear problems and old age pad related lesions.

    Keep faith with what really? This year’s already gone half way, NASS hasn’t passed no f*cking budget, any Nigerian expecting any miracle between now and December must be living in a Trump presidency where each day brings some unexpected activity not from this snail speed “not in control” cabal dictating president, we know the game plan, save all the cash then release it next year against 2019 elections, I was told this by a foreigner in Jan 2016 and his prediction is coming true….PMB truth be said we’ve totally lost confidence in you…do you time and just move on..

      I am even tired of him and his style of leadership. He should simply do his time and move out of Aso rock villa.
