President Goodluck Jonathan spent his Easter Sunday at the Aso Villa Chapel in Abuja with clergymen and family members praying for peace in Nigeria.
The president had earlier today said the increasing tempo of Boko Haram attacks will not cause the country to break up vowing to keep the country one.
He said, “No criminal group will make Nigeria to disintegrate. Boko Haram will come and go.”
The President said the hope brought by the resurrection of Jesus Christ gives him assurance that insurgency in the country was ephemeral.
“To me, Easter is the most important in Christian faith because our hope would have been in vain without the resurrection of Christ.
“The resurrection of Christ gives us hope. Just like Christ told the people when he was alive that his disciple will face tribulations.
“As a nation, we are facing tribulation but surely we have hope. Surely, we will overcome the tribulations.
“Even those who think that this country will be divided into North, South, East and West, will not see it come to pass.
“The Boko Haram will not make Nigeria to disintegrate’’, he stressed.
