Election : Jonathan lost nothing, says Aso Villa Chaplain

Despite losing the presidential elections to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, the Aso Villa Chaplain, Ven. Obioma Onwuzurumba says President Goodluck Jonathan has lost nothing.

In a sermon marking the Sunday Easter at the Aso Villa Chapel, he said that President Jonathan was just ready to give more service to the nation.

Stressing that Jonathan is not Jesus, he likened him to Jesus Christ, who was despised by the world but later sought after.

He said: “Some will say Jonathan has lost election. Jonathan has lost nothing, he was to give and not to get. This Jonathan they despise today, they will look for him someday.”

“He will be an adviser. He is not Jesus but he is like Jesus,” he added.

He noted that even some of the disciples did not have the conviction that Jesus was the messiah despite doing many miracles in their presence.

According to him, one of the reasons why Jesus Christ rose from the grave was to go to the Father and to come back to take the saints and believers home.

“He lives and He is changing lives and we have hope in Him,” he said.

President Jonathan did not make any remark during the service.

First lesson was taken from Psalm 16:1-11 while the second lesson was taken from Luke 24:13 – 35

Special prayer was also offered for the first family and the nation.

The Chaplain also announced to the congregation that the chapel will hold breakfast meeting with the President on 25th of April while the church will also meet him on the 3rd of May, 2015.

Among those who attended the service included Chief of Staff, Jones Arogbofa, former Leader of House of Representatives, Tunde Akogun, Executive Secretary of Nigerian Pilgrims Board, John Keneddy Opara.

Others are Agriculture Minister, Adesina Akinwunmi, Minister of State for the Federal CapitalTerritory, Olajumoke Akinjide, former Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu and Senator phillip Aduda.

The First lady, Dame Patience Jonathan was absent at the service.
