Minister of Steel Development, Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu has felicitated with Nigerians on Christmas as they commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Audu in a statement made available by his Special Assistant on Media, Lizzy Okoji in Abuja urged Nigerians to reflect on the essence of Christmas, and make positive impacts that would be sustained beyond the festive period.
He also urged Nigerians to extend love to one another beyond every form of divide, remembering the less privileged, displaced persons, vulnerable groups, and those in humanitarian crisis.
He also admonished the Christian fold to use the opportunity of Christmas to pray for the peace, unity and development of Nigeria, the President and those at the helm of leadership.
“Christmas is a time of the year to reflect on the essence of the celebration which is the birth of Jesus Christ; to show love, and affection to one another. It is also a time to rededicate our commitments to Nigeria, humanity and nation building.
“It is equally important that we live and show acts of kindness that would make long lasting positive impacts even beyond the Christmas season.
“It is a season of Renewed Hope for Nigerians which can be seen in the various policies of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, just within a few months of assuming office as the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. This certainly means, better days ahead for Nigerians.
“However, the President can not do it alone, and that is why it is very important that we commit ourselves to the vision of the Renewed Hope agenda so that together, we can achieve a better Nigeria.
“I wish us all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance,” Prince Audu stated.
