- President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Christians as they mark this year's Easter celebration
- According to the president, Nigeria is better and stronger as one nation under God
- The nation shall pull through this most difficult trial, the president stated
Nigerians have been urged by President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow a few mischief mongers to divide the country, saying the nation is better and stronger as one nation under God.
President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his position that his government will continue to ensure that the weak, the poor, and the underprivileged are not abandoned.
The president who rejoiced with Christians said this year's celebration is coming at a time when church worshippers can now congregate, unlike last year when people could not attend traditional services as they would have wished.
“The restrictions meant that our brethren could not attend traditional church services as they would have wished. I salute their resilience and understanding.
“Today, we are able to congregate and worship together, cautiously.”
He also used the opportunity to appreciate the sacrifices of doctors, nurses, and other frontline health workers, for their efforts at reducing the spread of the virus and saving lives.
Buhari also assured citizens that the country's security challenges would soon become things of the past.
He commended law enforcement and military personnel who, he said, continued to confront evil-minded individuals through the darkest of nights to keep everyone safe.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that President Buhari on Tuesday afternoon, March 30, departed Abuja for his routine medical check-up in London, United Kingdom.
The Nigerian leader took-off in one of the jets in the presidential fleet from the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
His spokesman, Femi Adesina via a short statement posted on his Facebook page on Monday, March 29, noted that Buhari is due back in the country during the second week of April 2021.
