The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of the 2022 Christmas to rekindle their trust in God and reinforce their love for one another in the renewed hope of a brighter future for the nation under a purposeful, caring and humane leadership in the coming year.
Elumelu, in a message, said Christmas, the commemoration of the birth of the Saviour, Jesus Christ, was a rejuvenating assurance of God’s unfailing presence, love and redemption for mankind, and particularly our nation, from the current suppressive administration that had brought so much pain and hardship to Nigerians.
“It is indeed heartrending that in the last seven and half years of the current administration, Nigerians have been so deprived that they cannot afford their basic needs and made to observe major festivities in fear, misery and utter desolation, due to economic hardship and rising insecurity.
“Despite the challenges, we must not succumb to despondency but strengthen the bond of unity, celebrate and share with one another in love, believing that this will be the last Christmas under an uncaring government.
“Moreover, Christmas presents yet another opportunity for those behind the acts of violence and disunity in our country to turn a new leaf and embrace a life of peace, love and harmonious living, especially as our nation prepares for crucial general elections in the coming year.
“We must, therefore, use the celebration of the coming of Jesus to affirm our trust in God’s saving grace to rescue our nation from the wood and return her on the path of unity, peace, joy and happiness, which is the reason for the season.
“The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives felicitates with Nigerians and wishes them a merry Christmas and a happy new year ahead,” the Minority Leader stated in the statement.
