National Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has asked Nigerians to reflect deeply on the virtues of love, tolerance, godliness, honesty, fairness, selflessness and peaceful co-existence which the Messiah espoused during his earthly mission.
As Christians commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, Odigie-Oyegun said Christians and non-Christians alike should make love a cardinal objective.
In a goodwill message to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, he urged Nigerians to offer special prayers for peace, unity and development in the country.
He urged Nigerians to shun hatred, divisiveness and promote national unity.
He also urged Nigerians to pray for the military and other security agents fighting to overcome terrorism and violent extremism as well as prayers for victims and displaced persons in the insurgency-ravaged North East.
Odigie-Oyegun further urged religious leaders to pray for the nation and its leaders continuously, as the prevailing situation in the country called for wise counsel and divine intervention.
