MERRIMENT and excesses, the
type associated with Christmas,
are alien to Easter. The manner of
celebrating the resurrection of
Jesus Christ, whose death
according to Christian doctrine,
God used in saving mankind, is
always filled with the sobriety of
appreciating the depth of the
sacrifice.
It is tough for Nigerians to be
happy at this time. The economic
challenges apart, scores of
Nigerians die daily from the
terrorist attacks that have
heightened insecurity
everywhere. Yet the results of the
elections and the expectations
they have created could generate
momentary happiness.
Thoughts of God’s love are hardly
associated with the present
attitude of Nigerians to one
another. The celebration of
Easter is steadily eroding its
religious content. Speeches and
preachments have been elevated
to the reason for the season.
Neither preachers, nor their
listeners are making efforts to
live the life – sacrifice,
forgiveness, expectations of a
share in the life beyond – which
Easter should inspire.
Jesus Christ, the centre of the
celebrations, died to reconcile
mankind to the Almighty, in the
same way that He expects we
would be reconciled to each
other. The raging conflicts in the
country, across regions, religions
and reasons, do not reflect any
knowledge of Easter. For people
as religious as Nigerians, the
number of conflicts and their
intensity question their belief.
The rich and mighty send
messages that ignore realities
that hurt Nigerians. Our leaders
would regurgitate the message
of Easter on their way to
merriment while workers’
salaries are not paid, justice is
denied, the poor are getting
poorer. Some pensioners – old
people who have given their
youth to this country – missed
making it to this Easter, as they
died queueing for their pittance.
They are hardly paid.
Easter presents a great
opportunity to explore God’s
unfailing love. We should also
think about those who our
national policies hurt the most.
We need to reconcile our policies
with the needs of our people,
who we are hurting so much
that they are losing hope that
our leaders remember them.
Jesus cared for the poor all His
days. For Him, it was not a show
to be put on and off at certain
times of the year. Caring for the
needy, the challenged, the
disadvantaged, the poor, the
weak, the sick, the oppressed,
the widows, the orphans is not
about photo opportunities. It is a
life-long commitment that should
be the essence of daily
leadership.
Life is getting tougher daily.
Ordinary Nigerians watch as
opportunities elude them
because selfish leaders spend all
their time on themselves. This
definitely contradicts the spirit of
Easter, which is about daily
commitment to sacrifice for
others, as Jesus Christ did.
Happy Easter Nigerians!
