After being executed on a cross on Good Friday, Jesus was buried in a tomb. The first Easter, some 2,000 years ago, God the Father raised Jesus from the dead.

From Good Friday up to today, some world leaders have conveyed their Easter messages. One of the popular persons, the former US President, Barack Obama, said, via Twitter:

“Although our celebrations may look different this year, our unwavering faith remains the same. For me, Easter is a time of hope––a reminder of rebirth and renewal––and a belief in a better day to come. From my family to yours, we wish you all a blessed and joyful Easter.”

In Uganda, Uganda People’s Congress [UPC] party leader, Jimmy Akena – who also doubles as the Lira Municipality MP, shared this message with Ugandans.

“May this Easter remind us of the incredulous hope where Christ’s submission to the Will of God, brought about the ultimate victory over the finality of death. Let us approach the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic with the understanding and fortitude that, working together, we as a people will ultimately prevail.

Let us commit in Prayer and while providing all the necessary support, those who have the difficult task of fighting this pandemic from the frontline.

Let us diligently follow the guidelines from our health professionals to effectively curtail the spread of this deadly virus.

On behalf of the Uganda People’s Congress and myself, I wish you all a remarkable Easter during this global lockdown.”
