Yakubu Dogara’s Easter message confuses Nigerians
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has shared a series of tweets on Good Friday in celebration of Easter.
The tweets from the Speaker left many Nigerians confused because they carried a lot of weight about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Some who don’t know that Yakubu Dogara is a Christian wondered why the Speaker would share such as a Muslim.
As the song writer wrote; “when justice called for all my debts: the friend of sinner came instead.” For without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. Salvation came to us because Jesus defeated death. And we follow him because he provided the solution to death.
Easter is God’s scandalous love when He choose to die for the sins of not His friends but enemies. As Christians who are Christ-like, we must also demonstrate God’s love in us by loving all mankind, forgiving not just friends but enemies, praying for our own leaders & our country.
Our challenges are never insurmountable as mankind has always overcame its limitations over time. Let us therefore, not despair but persevere in prayers & supplications. May Christ’s triumph over death bring to live everything that is death in our lives and nation.
