Christmas: See Atiku Abubakar message to Christians, Nigerians

On Thursday, Atiku Abubakar, former Vice-President, urged Christians and all Nigerians to take the opportunity of the Christmas celebration to rededicate themselves to God.

In a statement by Mr. Paul Ibe, his Media Adviser in Abuja, Atiku urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their prayers, which he believed have an enormous effect on the peace, security, unity and stability of the country.

He added that it was important for Nigerians to inject healing and to unify the serum of love for their neighbours into the nation’s consciousness this season.

The former Vice President urged Nigerians to think good and sow better action to make the country more desirable because restoring the country’s glory was everyone’s responsibility.

“On this significant occasion of Christmas, I felicitate with all Nigerians, particularly the Christian faithful on the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

“Christmas is a time of love. Therefore, I call on all Nigerians to emulate the essence of this season and unite for the greater good of our dear country.

“This period reminds us of the need to uphold the virtues of love, selflessness and tolerance.

“I call on all Nigerians to reflect on the lessons of the season, which presents an opportunity to love and share,” he said.

Atiku called on Nigerians to also remember their fellow citizens, the personnel of the armed forces.

This, according to him, includes those who lost their lives in 2020, fighting to protect citizens from terrorist attacks, kidnapping banditry, and other threats against national security.

“The message of Christmas, according to the Christian faith is one of unprecedented self-sacrifice to redeem humanity, so it’s the season of love, joy, generosity and forgiveness.

“Even as we celebrate with friends and family, we should also spend time to pray for a more peaceful and prosperous nation.

“As a nation, we can achieve more if we stay united, extend hands of fellowship to one another and be law-abiding,” he added.
