“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 nation.

“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”, the statement concluded.
