Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state on Sunday assured Nigerians that they would soon overcome whatever challenges confronting them.
Akeredolu gave the assurance during the 2018 Easter Service at the Chapel of Grace, Government House in Akure.
The governor, who tasked the Christian community to have hope that Nigeria would be great again, urged them to rededicate themselves to the service of their fatherland.
Mr. Akeredolu described Easter as a period of sober reflection on the significance of the death of Jesus Christ and his great sacrifice to give humanity the hope of eternal life.
According to him, the exemplary life of Jesus Christ is a great lesson that must be emulated by all.
He advised Christians to continue to be tolerant of one another, show and promote love, as well as be advocates of peaceful coexistence.
In his sermon with theme: 'The Resurrection of Jesus Christ: A Demonstration of divine love", Revd Lawrence Ekundayo said the resurrection of Jesus Christ was the greatest Christian doctrine that could be preached.
He said without resurrection, there would be no church, and every human being would have had to pass through depression.
