President Goodluck Jonathan’s first Easter Sunday service and celebration in Lagos was marred by an embarrassing power outage at the Our Savour’s Church Marina, where the President worshipped.
The President’s speech was interrupted as the power outage occurred while he was delivering his speech to the congregation.
It was while he was talking about his administration’s restructuring of the Nigerian economy that the church was thrown into darkness.
Laughing along with the cheering congregation, Dr Jonathan remarked that by the power outage, officials of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria are telling him not to sleep until the nation’s power crisis is fixed.
“They know that I’m here; that’s why they took light, at least to remind me that I must not sleep until we stabilize power. God willing, next year they will not take light” he said.
He however vowed that by next year the power in the church will be uninterrupted.
The Easter Sunday service also had in attendance, former Head of State General Yakubu Gowon.
