“I want to congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the celebration of Easter, which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a very significant event in Christendom, and also on the end of the Lenten season, which is also a time of sacrifice, and prayers to God.

“Nigeria is a country loved by God, and it is no coincidence that this year’s Lenten and Ramadan seasons fell during the same period. The season provided an opportunity for Nigerians, irrespective of their faith, to offer prayers to God for the betterment of our dear country.

“This past week, we have seen visible economic progression, with our naira strengthening and other economic indicators improving. This is a clear indication that our economy is stabilising under the visionary leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinibu GCFR, and we are assured of better days ahead.
