Senate President Godswill Akpabio urged Nigerians to be positive in the face of adversity over the weekend.
Eseme Eyiboh, Akpabio’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, stated in a Christmas greeting that the sufferings Nigerians are experiencing as a result of the elimination of petroleum subsidies are for the betterment of everyone.
He encouraged Christians to pray and stay optimistic because “Nigeria will also overcome its current challenges, and today’s pain will surely produce joyful gains in a very short time.”
“On behalf of my family and constituents, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and indeed the entire National Assembly, I wish to sincerely congratulate all our Christian brothers and sisters on the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ.”
“As you celebrate, I urge you not only to rejoice, but also to continue to pray for our dear Nigeria and its leaders.” “Show one another love and continue to reflect on Jesus Christ’s life, particularly his humility, sacrifice, love for neighbor, and loyalty to God and constituted authority,” the statement said.
Akpabio further urged Nigerians not to abandon their leaders, notably President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s current administration.
“I am confident that the current administration will wipe away your tears in the near future with your prayers and support.”
“During this joyous season, may the birth of Jesus echo within us all, guiding our thoughts, words, and actions.” May His optimism rekindle our spirits, inspiring us to love and be nice to everyone around us. Each simple act of kindness can brighten a life and bring light to the darkest corners of our world.
“Christmas is a time when hope fills the air and joy and goodwill fill our hearts.” Nonetheless, among the twinkling lights and holiday pleasure, it is critical to remember the reason for the season – the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. “In a world beset by uncertainty, strife, and challenges, Jesus remains a beacon of hope, providing solace and assurance to all who seek Him,” he continued.
