Easter holiday rooted in Christian faith

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is described in the New Testament and the festival marked for the day is called Easter.

Governor P.Sadasivam said that the resurrection of Jesus Christ inspire us to serve the weak and the downtrodden in a spirit of love and oneness.

Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River has called on Christians and all Nigerians to use this year's Easter celebration to reflect on its significance in the life of the nation.

China's economic growth passes predictions
While we should always remain sceptical of the Chinese government's GDP data, these figures suggest that growth is stabilising. FAI includes capital spent on infrastructure, property, machinery and other physical assets.

Easter celebrations are preceded by the 40 days of Lent, a time of abstinence and penance. The good news of Easter tells us that wherever we look, regardless of what day it is, Jesus is there, waiting to be seen, waiting for our eyes to open and see new life and new possibilities.

Egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades are also followed by Christians or even non-Christians.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com recently reported that former presidential aide, Dr Doyin Okupe says Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan trusted the wrong people when he was in power.

Jared Kushner and Stephen Bannon meet to smooth tensions
Trump may be considering a major shakeup in his top staff , and that Priebus and Bannon's jobs are in danger. But to ABC News, Bannon flatly denied the reports , calling them "absurd".

"The great holiday of Easter has a special moral sense, it spreads the eternal light of faith, fills hearts with joy, love and goodness", the President said.

Christian pilgrims light candles during the Easter Sunday procession at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, traditionally believed by many Christians to be the site of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus Christ, in Jerusalem, Sunday, April 16, 2017.

First Presbyterian Church minister Nyalle Paris said he was pleased with the turnout for the Sunday morning service at his church.

McIlroy dares to dream as Augusta gets tough
That's a big statement - and the kind of thing a golfer says when he's feeling good about his game. "It was a bad one", he said. Risky times await, as Garcia, whose name was being stencilled on to the Claret Jug in 2007, knows rather too well.

Ayokunle prayed to God to end the economic hardship as He rolled away the stone from the tomb of Jesus Christ. And that's what Easter does - gently or powerfully - that Jesus died on the cross not because God wasn't in control, but because He was - and still is. Privott said the historical events that lie behind Easter give meaning to the life of a Christian.
