The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Mr. Ndudi Elumelu has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of Christmas to rekindle their love and respect for one another which he said are necessary to promote coexistence in the country.
Mr Ndudu Elumelu, in his Christmas message also admonished Nigerians to use the yuletide season to forgive one another, eschew all divisive tendencies and rededicate themselves to acts that bring peace, unity and bond.
He noted that “Indeed, our unity and advancement as a nation are strengthened when we appreciate God’s love, forgiveness and kindness, which he demonstrated to us through the birth of Jesus Christ into the world.
In descending from his heavenly glory to this earthly realm, Christ demonstrated humility, love and selflessness. Christmas offers us a strong message to imbibe these virtues in our individual and collective endeavors.”
The Minority leader also urged Nigerians to share with one another and reach out to those who are hurting so that the joy of the season is spread across board.
He implored those behind the mindless violence, killings and kidnapping in the land to have a rethink, as their actions cannot be justified under any guise.
Mr. Elumelu however assured Nigerians of the commitment of the Minority Caucus of House of Representatives in protecting their interest at all times.
He prayed for the safety of all and wished Nigerians joyful Christmas and yuletide celebrations.
