Former President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated Nigerians on their Christmas celebration, saying love, unity and peace should be embraced among Christians and others around the world.
Jonathan on Friday signed by his Special Assistant (Media), Ikechukwu Eze, told Nigerians to “approach this Christmas season with optimism and renewed faith in ourselves and our country”.
He said: “At Christmas, we celebrate the love, hope and joy that the birth of Jesus heralds to the world. As individuals and as a nation, we face different challenges. But we must not allow this to undermine our faith in God and our country, as well as jeopardize our shared promise of greatness and prosperity.
“Let us approach this Christmas season with optimism and renewed faith in ourselves and our people. Let us show love, tolerance, a sense of unity and peace to our neighbors and those around us this season and beyond. Merry Christmas.”
