Chief Emma Eneukwu, Deputy National Chairman South of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Nigerians to allow the spirit of Christmas be a catalyst for unity and collaboration in the country.
Eneukwu, in a Christmas message made available to Ikengaonline in Enugu called on Nigerians to allow their confession of love and brotherliness to speak louder than words.
According to him, as we joyfully gather to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I extend heartfelt Christmas greetings to each and every one of you.
He said as Christians and fellow Nigerians, “we share a common purpose and vision for a better Nigeria,” adding: “Let us work hand in hand, transcending differences for the greater good of our beloved country.”
Eneukwu said: “In embracing the spirit of Christmas, let us encourage ourselves to use our freedom as an opportunity to serve one another in love.
“As Christians, our faith calls us to embody the essence of love, compassion and selflessness throughout the year, but especially during this festive season.
“Therefore, let our interactions with one another, regardless of political affiliations; be guided by the principles of love and unity. Together, as a united Christian community, we can contribute to a more harmonious Nigeria.”
The APC deputy national chairman noted that beyond the joy of festivities, Christmas is an opportune time to extend our love to those who are less privileged and in need.
“Let us open our hearts and hands to those around us, making a positive impact on the lives of those who may be facing challenges.
“My dear fellow Christians may the joy of Christmas fill your hearts and homes. May this season inspire us to be beacons of love, compassion and unity,” he added.
