The President, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Samson Ayokunle, has assured Nigerians that corruption and economic downturn will soon become a thing of the past.

Mr. Ayokunke said this in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Adebayo Oladeji, on Sunday in Abuja.

The CAN president, who gave this assurance in his Easter Message to the nation, prayed God to bring to end the economic hardship facing the country.

“I wish all Nigerians a happy Easter in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. It is a season of hope, joy and restoration.

“The Lord that rolled away the stone from the mouth of the tomb to put the enemy to shame will roll away all causes of economic hardship from our nation.

“Corruption will be a thing of the past as earthquake came to help in removing all hindrances to the resurrection of Christ for a glorious dawn to emerge.

“The God of heaven will divinely intervene to bail our nation out of economic downturn in the name of Jesus.”

Mr. Ayokunle expressed optimism that the future of the country would be characterised by abundance, joy and celebrations.

“As the resurrection morning brought a day of joy and laughter back to the disciples, the future years shall be full of abundance in Nigeria.

“It will bring back our joy and celebration in our streets in the name of Jesus.

“Our challenges of today will become the ladder to our testimonies tomorrow in the name of Jesus.

“It is well with you, our leaders at all levels of government and our nation in the name of Jesus Christ,’’ he said.

He therefore admonished Nigerians to sustain praying for the country and her leaders as they confront the challenges facing the populace.

Daniel Kadzai, the National President, Youth Wing of CAN, also urged youth to be drivers of peace and nation building instead of being accomplice of massive looting and corruption.

He also called on the church to be agents of change so as to help transform the nation from its present predicament to a better living condition for all.

“Nigeria cannot arise until the church decides to arise and take her original responsibility of soul winning, than too much emphasis on money, questionable miracles and dirty fight over positions.

“We all need to think of bringing a positive change in our various capacities because we can change the nation,” he said.

    Why Nigeria can not grow out of recession or ever develop

    Nigeria can never grow or develop into a liveable country bound by any
    rational order. It will continue to recede and worsen because Nigeria is a
    country of thieves and illiterates neither of whom is a lever of development if
    knowledge is power and if knowledge is also moral, as excluding thefts.

    To the question:
    ‘How can a whole country choose ignorance over truth and not feel
    like lower animals
    ?’, i ask in disbelief that for four days nobody is told and
    nobody demands to be told the identity of the resident in the flat at Osborne
    road used for moneylaundering activity, where over $50 million was stashed
    away illicitly in a wardrobe behind a purposely built false wall in the apartment.

    What’s the purpose of building schools or universities in such a country where
    ignorance is a preferred situation? Where’s the connection between Buhari’s
    government and the people it claims to govern if Buhari treats the $50million
    as if it is personal money by shuttering out the people from even knowing the
