Former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has appealed to the public and everyone around the entire globe to pursue peace and love one another as a representation of what Christmas signifies to everyone.

Dr. Jonathan expressed this in a goodwill address to Christians, emphasizing that Christmas promotes hopefulness to the globe, despite the obstacles brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and some other challenges.

The former President underlined that Jesus Christ’s birthday is emblematic of love, victory, sacrifice, and the sufficiency of joy and peace to the world in a greeting titled Compliments of the Season Dear Friends, Patriots, and Christians Around the World.

In his exact address, he said

I am delighted to join you all to celebrate this year’s Christmas. The year has been defined by remarkable events across the world with COVID-19 and its many variants disrupting our systems, economies and social lives.

In the midst of global challenges which we, as a nation, have also had a fair share, Christmas presents to us rays of hope, joy and peace. The birthday of Jesus Christ is symbolic of love, victory, sacrifice and the sufficiency of joy and peace to the world.

As we celebrate, let’s, therefore, live with optimism, sacrifice, peace and love towards one another and our nation.

Let us manifest justice, patience and faith which are virtues exemplified by Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. This is the way to build our societies better from the horrors associated with the pandemic and overcome our national challenges.
