Christmas: Nigerian UK-Based Medical Consultant, Abidikugu Fecilitates Nigerians

A Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Kazeem Adesina Abidikugu in Oyo state, has felicitated with the people of Ibadan south east/north east federal constituency, Oyo state and Nigerians as a whole, particularly Christians as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

In a statement in Ibadan on Saturday, Abidikugu, a Nigerian UK based medical consultant also urged Christians to use the festive season to pray for unity, peace and prosperity of Oyo state and Nigeria as 2023 elections draw nearer.

Abidikugu, who is also the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DAKA Foundation implored Nigerians as a whole to rededicate themselves to the service of humanity in line with the true teachings of Jesus Christ which emphasises tolerance, patience, brotherly kindness, care for the needy and love for one another, among other virtues.

According to him, “I congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the Christmas celebration. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, I enjoin all to imbibe the spirit of true love and sacrifice for one another.

“The yuletide season presents us an opportunity once more to love, share and forgive. I urge all Nigerians to utilise the period to pray for unity, peace and prosperity in the Oyo state and the nation as whole.

“The lessons of humility, selflessness, love and simplicity learnt from the birth of Jesus, should be our guiding principles.

“We must also rededicate ourselves to the true virtues of faith in God, love for one another, honesty and peaceful co-existence. It is time to make these virtues more evident and practical in our daily lives.

“I urge all of us to spread love to our neighbours and remember the underprivileged as we celebrate Christmas. Let us all remember that it is a time to spread the love of Christ with family, friends, neighbours and the underprivileged in the society.

“We should bear in mind that the greatest command Jesus gave to his followers is to love one another. Not only does this have spiritual benefits, it will also make Nigeria a better place because love overcomes all things including hatred, violence and other vices.

“This season is another opportunity to increase our acts of kindness and touch the less privileged in our society”.
