The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has charged Nigerians to see the birth of Jesus Christ, as energizer to resist evil and injustice in the country.
Prince Secondus gave the charge in his Christmas message through a statement yesterday by his Media Adviser, Ike Abonyi in Abuja.
The PDP National Chairman advised Nigerians to “make use of this period to seek God’s face so he can save this country from the hands of evil ones who are insensitive to the plight of the suffering masses”.
According to Secondus, he said faith teaches that Christ came to save the world but said the people must do the will of his father in heaven to enjoy the benefit.
He noted that the political and economic retrogression currently being faced by Nigeria can only be stemmed by “the master Jesus whose birth at Christmas brought hope to humanity”.
Continuing, he said, “A Yuletide occasion like Christmas provides ample opportunity for us to seek the messiah to meet us at the point of our needs and desires.
“The worrisome state of the nation could have been averted if people who govern have the fear of God in them.
“As Christmas marks the birthday anniversary of our lord and savor, Jesus Christ, there is no better time than now to seek God’s intervention for a rescuer who would save this country.
“The indignation across the land says it all that the people are sad and disillusioned, this is a fact whether they believe it or not, let us therefore use this period to pray for a peaceful country where leaders fear God and play by the rules.
“Love for one another is the real reason for this season and Christians should do nothing but show love to all Nigerians irrespective of tribe and religion by building on those things that unite rather than what divides us”, he said.
The National Chairman, on behalf of the leadership and members of the PDP, wished all Nigerians joyful and trouble free festivity.
