Christmas: Lawan urges Nigerians to show love, pray for peace
 
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, felicitates Christians in Nigeria as they join their brethren across the world in celebrating Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.
 
Lawan says beyond the great merriment and thanksgiving joy that have come to be associated with the season, Christmas reminds mankind of the humble birth, simple life, teachings and sacrificial love of Jesus Christ.
 
He says this is the reason why the season is for practical demontration of love and universal goodwill through giving to the needy and sharing with neighbours.
 
 However, as they celebrate Christmas and Boxing Day, Lawan urges Nigerians to engage only in activities that enhance peace and harmony in their immediate environment and beyond, in the true spirit of the season.
 
"Jesus Christ embodies selfless love, self-sacrifice, justice and peace, all of which virtues our country needs more than ever before as it marches through big challenges to sustain its democracy and development.
 
"Therefore, I enjoin us all to reflect on the significance of the season and recommit to these virtues for the benefit of our dear country Nigeria and mankind in general.
 
"Let us all continue to pray for peace in Nigeria and engage only in things that will make Nigeria the great country that we desire it to be. 
 
"The current challenges require the continued cooperation, support and understanding of all Nigerians for the government to succeed.
 
"I have no doubt that the meaningful collaboration between the Legislature and the Executive in the governance process is making the political environment conducive for addressing national challenges and harnessing opportunities," Lawan says.
 
The Senate President wishes all Nigerians Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ahead.
