Christmas: Recommit Yourselves To Nation Building -Uba Sani Tells Nigerians

Uba Sani


By Joseph Edegbo:

Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Kaduna Central, Northwest Nigeria, Uba Sani has enjoined Nigerians to recommit themselves to nation building, just as he felicitates with Christians on the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

In a message, especially to his constituents, Uba Sani said Christmas is a time for reunion and merrymaking, but more importantly, a time for deep reflections on spiritual lives and the state of families, communities, states, nation and entire humanity.

“As we celebrate, we must be mindful of the reason for Christmas, which is to love one another. We must draw inspiration from the exemplary life of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was an embodiment of love, peace, selflessness, patience, justice, truth, joy, humility, compassion and sacrifice.

“If we imbibe and demonstrate in our daily lives the virtues and values exemplified by Jesus Christ during his Ministry on Earth, our families, communities and country would be better places.

“This year’s Christmas is being celebrated at a time many of our communities are in the grip of conflicts and violence. Our country men and women are in pains. They look to us for succour and comfort. We must give them a helping hand in the true spirit of Christmas. “The search for peace must henceforth occupy our attention. We must be prepared to do justice and accept genuine reconciliation to achieve enduring peace.

“On the economic front, our country continues to grapple with huge challenges. President Muhammadu Buhari and our leaders at different levels are making strenuous efforts to stabilise the country. But we must, as Nigerians, recommit ourselves to the building of a better Nigeria. We owe it to ourselves, our country and generations yet unborn.

“As the 2019 general elections draws closer, my plea to politicians is to tone down their rhetorics and focus on issues.  There is increasing lack of civility in public discourse. We must use temperate language in order not to overheat the polity.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all Christians in Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone in particular and Kaduna State in general for their immense contributions to the growth and development of the state. May the spirit of Christmas help in the search for lasting peace in the State.

“I urge our dear Christian Community not to waver in their support for Governor Nasir El-Rufai and President Muhammadu Buhari. They have both shown leadership and commitment to the building of a better Kaduna State and Nigeria. They deserve our continued support. “
