The Peoples Democratic Party in its Easter message  urged Nigerians to use Good Friday and Easter to pray for peace and understanding in the country.
The PDP charged Nigerians “use the period to imbibe the spirit of love, forgiveness and good neighbourliness especially given the success already achieved by the PDP administration in the fight against terrorism in the land”.
 Olisa Metuh, PDP national publicity secretary, signed the statement published Friday on its Facebook page.
“The PDP is happy that the nation is celebrating this Easter in an atmosphere of peace principally inspired by the forthrightness and humility of President Goodluck Jonathan and the commitment of our great party to national unity and integration. We earnestly pray that this peace and the victory over insurgency by our government would be sustained.

“It is indeed gladdening that with this success in the fight against terrorism and the liberating of seized territories, our citizens in the northeast are joining their brothers and sisters in other parts of the country in celebrating Easter with the joy and divine assurance the resurrection of Jesus Christ brought to mankind.”

PDP prayed Easter blessings on all Nigerians and peaceful governorship and state assembly elections.

Abba Moro, the Minister of Interior,  declared April 3, Good Friday, and April 6, Easter Monday, as  public holidays.
In its own message, The All Progressives Congress (APC) congratulated Nigerians and encouraged  Nigerians to come together, irrespective of the fault lines separating them, for a national rebirth in the spirit of Easter.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the national publicity secretary of the party, released this statement in Lagos on April 4, 2015, Saturday.
The APC Easter message reads  in part:
“At the core of Easter, which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, are the messages of renewal and rebirth, sacrifice, forgiveness and love. In the culmination of his life of selfless sacrifice, Jesus Christ gave his life for others to live. Let us emulate him, in our private and public lives, by exhibiting those virtues for which he lived
”This year’s Easter celebrations have coincided with an ongoing political transition that has so far been widely adjudged a success, and one that also paves the way for us to have a national rebirth. In doing this, we must show love and eschew bitterness. We must put the acrimony of the long drawn electioneering campaign behind us.
”Just like Jesus Christ remains a shining light in a world of gloom, let us be beacons of faith, hope and love as we, irrespective of our political leaning, embark on the onerous task of making our nation great again.”
