The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, south-west Nigeria, Ayodele Fayose, on Friday, April 19, urged Nigerians not to give up but keep hope alive on the challenges presently facing the country.
Naija News reports that Fayose made this statement in his Easter message to Nigerians which was issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.
Fayose said, “the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, has given mankind the hope that no situation is beyond the divine power of God.”
The former governor charged Nigerians to stand for the truth at all times, added that “only the truth exalts a nation.”
In the Easter message which was sent to Naija News, Fayose said; “That our Lord Jesus Christ never gave up on his mission for our salvation despite the betrayals, humiliation and persecution is the reason we must never give up on our country Nigeria.
“By raising His Son, God Himself has established and secured our hope for a better tomorrow.
“Therefore, in the spirit of Easter, we must let our hope in Nigeria be as alive as Jesus Christ,” the statement added.
