The Bishop of the Diocese of Kwara Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. Sunday Timothy Adewole has encouraged Nigerians to be hopeful of better days ahead despite the challenges confronting the nation.

In his Easter message on Sunday at the Cathedral of Saint Barnabas Anglican Church Sabo-Oke Ilorin, Kwara State, Rev. Adewole said: “We should be hopeful in an  hopeless situation because the lord is there he has the ability to turn things around for good”.

On the aftermath of the 2023 general elections, he said “nobody can come to power except the Lord put him there. If we want to seek redress, we should go the legal way; we should not incite people, we should follow the law of the land and then hope on the Lord”.

On the essence of Easter festivities, Bishop Adewole said: “Easter celebration is  the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Today Jesus rose to defeat Satan and to open the gate of eternity for believers. Today is so important because if there is no resurrection, there will be no Christianity. He rose. that is why we have confidence to know that even after living this world, there will be place in the Kingdom” .

Some of the faithful also expressed delight on the celebration of Easter and hope for better days ahead.

The state governor, Abdulrahman Abdurazak had earlier congratulated the Christian community on the Easter festivities, calling it a period of introspection, self-discipline, sacrifice, forgiveness, and commitment to God.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, the Governor called on Nigerians to take advantage of the period to seek God’s favour for the country and eschew all divisive tendencies.

“The Easter festivities come at a unique moment in our national life when we have just elected new representatives and chief executives to pilot the affairs of the country for the next four years.

“In the spirit of the Easter, and of the Muslim’s holy month of Ramadan, we need to bury the hard feelings that came with electioneering campaign and join new leaders for the task of nation building — a task that requires everyone to support every effort for sustainable growth and development.

“I wish everyone greater strides and glad tidings as we celebrate the festivities”, the Governor further said.
