Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has felicitated with Christians on the occasion of the 2019 Christmas Day. The speaker used the opportunity to urge Christians to be Prayerful and to imbibe the virtues of Jesus Christ.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker noted that at a time like this, Nigerians should come together and celebrate with one another as well as pray for their leaders to lead them well for the good of the country.
“I wish to join millions of citizens to congratulate my Christian brothers and sisters for witnessing and marking this year’s Christmas peacefully. “Christmas is a period of merrymaking, but beyond that, it is also a period for us all as a people to take time and pray for our country. I admonish my Christian brothers and sisters to pray for our continued survival in peace and unity as a country.
“I also urge them to emulate all that Jesus Christ stood for: his love for humanity, his peace-making nature, his magnanimity, his accommodating mind and everything the Christ was known for.
Once again, I wish all Nigerian Christians merry Christmas,” the Speaker said.
