The National Chairman of Action Alliance Party Dr. Adekunle Rufai OmoAje has urged Christians and Nigerians, in the spirit of the Christmas celebration to uphold the principles of love, tolerance, and sacrifice to sustain harmony, progress, and advance the cause of humanity.
He stated this in a message made available to the media in Kaduna on 24th December, 2023.
The AA National Chairman felicitated with the Christian faithful and Nigerians in general, as they joined the rest of the world in celebrating Christmas.
The front-line grassroots politician added that the Christmas season represents joy, peace, hope, love, and goodwill. He added that these qualities are very much needed “in our country at this time when we are confronted with the diverse challenges of development”.
“I celebrate with the Christian fold and enjoin all of us to remember the essence of Christmas.
“In the true spirit of the season, let’s show love to our neighbors, kindness to the less-privileged and vulnerable, and tolerance to one another across the lines of faith, politics, and ethnicity; in the spirit of the unique sacrifice and the teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
“I urge fellow Nigerians to appropriate the hope that comes with Christmas and reinvest trust in God’s ability to restore the lost glory of Nigeria.”
He equally admonished Nigerians to reflect on the lessons of the period and emulate Christ by fostering peace and unity in our Nation.
OmoAje also tasked Nigerians with religious tolerance “since it is one way we as citizens can live in peace, harmony, and love as taught by Jesus Christ, who is the reason for the season.”
“More importantly, as we observe Christmas this year, let us all imbibe the essential message of Christ’s ministry and truly begin to love our fellow Nigerians as we love ourselves,” He added.
