Christmas: Atiku wants Nigerians to unite for the country’s greater good



Atiku Abubakar

Former vice president Atiku Abubakar, in his Christmas message to Nigerians, has called on citizens to “emulate the essence of this season and unite for the greater good of our dear country.”

Atiku made this known in a statement posted on his Facebook and Twitter pages.

See below:

I felicitate with all Nigerians, particularly the Christian faithful on the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Christmas is a time of love, therefore, I call on all Nigerians to emulate the essence of this season and unite for the greater good of our dear country.

Let us also remember our fellow citizens, the men and women of our armed forces, many of whom lost their lives this year fighting to protect us from terrorists and other threats to our national security. We ought to also spare a thought for our brothers and sisters who faced and are facing perils in Libya and the Mediterranean Sea.

Nabi Isa (Jesus Christ) taught that it is more blessed to give than to receive. So this Christmas, spare a thought for what you can give back to Nigeria. We can give our patriotism, our loyalty and our fidelity to the unity of this great nation that has given us so much.

And as we unite in celebration of this season, and in reflection of the months past, we must never forget, that to get Nigeria working again is the responsibility of each and everyone of us. Therefore, let us be intentional in thinking good thoughts and sowing even better actions to make Nigeria greater today and for all times.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

    Nigeria need action not just words. It’s sad to hear from afar what’s going wrong in Naija e.g the fuel scarcity in an oil producing country like Nigeria. Anyway, Happy Christmas to him too.

    I agree with him. Nigerians should all unite in getting rid of their old, useless and corrupt arses. Him and his ilk should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.

    That’s how Buhari wanted us to unite during Jonathan’s administration ?
