Christmas: Be hopeful, love one another, Atiku urges Nigerians
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated the Christian community in Nigeria on the occasion of this year’s Christmas celebrations, asking them to continue to be hopeful and love one another.
In a message released in Abuja on Tuesday by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, to mark Christmas, the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2019 presidential election, said
Nigerians should allow love and hope be their guiding principle as they mark the festivities.
He stressed that Nigerians, notably the Christian community, should be thankful to God that the Christmas festivities, heralding the birth of Jesus Christ, have come again.
The Waziri Adamawa noted that love was the conqueror of all things, including the challenges and tribulations that befell many people during the year and that having come thus far to celebrate Christmas, hope should remain the watchword of the faithful that the future would be better.
He urged Christians to celebrate with all their heart and extend their joy to all their neighbours including their fellow countrymen.
The former vice president further noted that that going by all that happened in the course of the year, “it is only love, hope and expectations of a better future that can hold Nigeria and all mankind together.”
