The Democratic Spirit is Alive and Well in
Nigeria – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan in his
Easter Message has said that our
collective actions since March 28 have
assured the international community
that the democratic spirit is alive and well
in the nation.
He said “I greet you all, especially our
Christian brothers and sisters, as we
celebrate Easter in commemoration of
the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
“For Christians all over the world, the
major lessons of Easter, which we
celebrate this year in the midst of general
elections in our nation, are to be found in
the Messiah’s divine love and glorious
self-sacrifice for the redemption of
mankind.
“This year’s celebration of Easter is taking
place at a period of very critical national
choices and decisions, during which we
must all be prepared and willing to make
sacrifices for greater unity, peace,
political stability and progress in our
beloved country.
“We must therefore seize the opportunity
of the Easter holiday to reflect deeply on
what more we need to do as a people, to
ensure that the political process in which
we are currently engaged is successfully
concluded and that our beloved country,
Nigeria continues to move towards a
better future for all of its citizens.
“Happily, we have already successfully
scaled the hurdle of the presidential and
National Assembly Elections. I am quite
hopeful that the gubernatorial and state
Assembly elections will also be conducted
peacefully.
“To the glory and pride of our fatherland,
our collective actions since March 28
have assured the world that the
democratic spirit is alive and well in our
nation.”
Senate President, David Mark in his
Easter Message also urged Nigerians to
always put the country first.
He said “Whichever side of the religion or
political divides we may find ourselves,
what must be paramount is the interest
of our country. What makes for the good
of all; welfare and security of our citizens
must of a necessity be our vision and
purpose.”
