Former Nigerian President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, has called for love, unity, and peace among Christians and others around the world.
He made the call Friday in his 2022 Christmas message to Nigerians.
The message was contained in a statement released by his media office in which the ex-president urged Nigerians to “approach this season of Christmas with optimism and renewed faith in ourselves and our country.”
Jonathan said: “At Christmas, we celebrate love, hope, and joy, which the birth of Jesus heralds to the world. As individuals and as a nation, we face different challenges. But we should not allow that to weaken our faith in God and our country and imperil our shared promise of greatness and prosperity.
“Let us approach this season of Christmas with optimism and renewed faith in ourselves and our country. Let us exhibit love, tolerance, sense of unity, and peace towards our neighbours and all around us during this season and beyond. Merry Christmas.”
