The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has felicitated with Christians on the occasion of the Easter, which signifies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In a statement signed by his special adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Turaki Hassan, Dogara, urged Christians and Nigerians in general to imbibe the lessons of the resurrection as living evidence that every challenge, including even death, can be overcome through abiding faith in God and dogged determination, noting that this should serve as a springboard to rise above the challenges they are currently faced with.

“As we remember the crucifixion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we should draw a lesson from his resurrection and rise above the challenges we currently face in this country.

“Even in recession, which the present administration is working hard to exit, there are many business opportunities for providing services and goods that will increase our gross domestic product, improve our economy and empower more of our citizens. We must put on our thinking caps, ginger our acclaimed spirit of innovation, rise above our challenges and get our country working.

“On our part, the House of Representatives will continue to collaborate with the executive by providing legislative backing to policies and programmes aimed at improving the living standard of Nigerians,” the Speaker promised while wishing all Nigerians a peaceful Easter celebration.
