Christmas is a yearly festival celebrated to mark the birthday of Jesus Christ. It encourages feelings of oneness and harmony, let us all be mindful that Christmas is a time of joy and peace, and it is my hope and prayer that you will experience its abundance.

This year, the world is seeing crisis of an unprecedented nature, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  It has sparked fear, frustration and anxiety all around, and has caused the deaths of thousands in Nigeria. It might be difficult to meet your near and dear ones on this day. But this should not take away the joy of this festival. Whether or not you get to celebrate the day with your friends and family this year.

I urge Christians to use this  important period to pray for our country on its challenges, reflect on the life of Christ and continue to imbibe his teachings; which are premised on, Peace, Tolerance, Selflessness, Sacrifice, Kindness, Patience, Modesty, Honesty, and Spirituality.  

I also call on Christians to use this opportunity to promote peace peaceful coexistence with one another irrespective of religious or ethnic backgrounds.

May this festive season brings lots of joy and happiness in your life. May all of your wishes and dreams come true, and may you feel this happiness all year round.
