As Nigerians join the rest of the world to celebrate the Yuletide, the Director General, National Orientation Agency NOA, Dr Garba Abari, has urged Nigerians to use this season to pray for renewed love, unity and brotherhood amongst citizens.
Dr Abari, advises Nigerians not to threaten the bond of unity it has enjoyed.
The NOA Director General, urges Nigerians to emulate and display the selflessness and love that Christmas represents by using the celebration to pray for the good of their neighbors as well as the stability and progress of the nation.
“Christmas portrays God’s selfless love for man, displayed through the birth of Jesus Christ as a gift to humanity. If we all selflessly love and care for the next person, irrespective of their religious, political and other persuasions, it will translate into a sacrificial love for our country and a genuine collective effort at national development.”
The NOA Director General calls on Nigerians to remain law abiding and peaceful during and after the Yuletide.
