Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan says Nigeria will overcome its challenges no matter what the forces of evil do.
Jonathan said this in an Easter message on Friday.
The former president appealed to Nigerians to live in unity.
“Easter is a time when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who died for the sin of the world,” a statement posted on his Facebook page read.
“In this season where we mark renaissance, I believe and expect Nigeria to rise and overcome her national challenges because our shared experiences are bringing us to the conclusion that no matter what the forces of evil can do, we as Nigerians, united in doing good, can and will prevail.
“I urge all Nigerians, even if we feel that we are not in a position to do much to help Nigeria to overcome, let us at least believe that she will overcome. That is a lot. That is a lot. Happy Easter.”
