"Let's allow ourselves to be taken - even seized - with Easter joy".

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday in his Easter message charged Nigerians to emulate the sacrificial life Jesus Christ led while on earth by accepting to give his life in redemption for the sins of all.

It's the churches 8th annual hunt, hosted by the Knights of Columbus, who say it's a fun way to get the family together and educate children about the importance of the Easter holiday. For Western churches, it can fall anywhere from March 22 to April 25, while the Orthodox Easter dates range from April 4 to May 8.

For many people, Easter celebrates spring; but for many local Christians, Easter celebrates something far more more important: the victory of Christ over death.

Ayokunle, who noted the agony of the disciples of Jesus Christ over his death and how their sadness turned into joy on the resurrection morning, was optimistic that the future of the country would be characterised by abundance, joy and celebrations. I love remembering all the times we did that as a family and seeing the younger generation discover the satisfaction in making an egg the "perfect" color with the "perfect" design and learning how to dye an egg with three colors all looking ideal. According to the New Testament, Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday, and came back to life three days later.

It was the biggest wave of student protests in the troubled valley. "This is a deeply worrying situation (sic)", he tweeted. In the resultant chaos some students received minor injuries and majority were discharged after first aid.

It is the holiest day on the Christian calendar.

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

"A very Happy Easter Sunday to all Malaysian Christians celebrating at home or overseas", he said in expressing his good wishes to those celebrating Easter.

Ayokunle, who gave the assurance yesterday in his Easter message, which was signed by his Special Assistant (Media & Communications), Adebayo Oladeji in Abuja, prayed to God to end economic hardship the way He rolled away the stone from the tomb of Jesus Christ.

Bell said Easter means a lot of things to a lot of people. God's blessings and graces await each of us, but we must do our part to receive them.
