Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, yesterday, assured of the restoration of peace and a more prosperous future for all Nigerians, regardless of the nation’s current challenges.

He made this known in a chat with journalists, shortly after the Easter Sunday service at the State House Chapel, Aso Villa, Abuja.

Osinbajo said: “My message is really a prayer. The resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is a defining moment for us, Christians. And one of the most important things to bear in mind is the resuscitation of hope.

“Where there is despair, I pray that hope would be restored. Where there is fear, I pray that there is courage and confidence. Where there is deprivation, I pray that there is prosperity and abundance.”

The Vice President added: “There may be things that appear dead but the power of the resurrection is one that assures us that life will come after death. So, we are completely confident, especially for our country, that everywhere we suffer deprivation, there will be restoration. That is the promise of the resurrection.”

Easter Sunday is celebrated worldwide by Christians to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Joining the Vice President and his wife, Mrs. Dolapo, at the Aso Villa Chapel for the service were Senator Emmanuel Bwacha and Danjuma Shiddi, both from Taraba State, and other senior officials in the Presidency.
