As Christians all over the world celebrate the 2021 Christmas, Oladidupo Adebutu has enjoined all Nigerians to embrace the virtues of peaceful coexistence and refrain from fanning the embers of disunity.
Adebutu, in his Christmas goodwill message, released by his Media Consultant, Afolabi Orekoya, stressed that it is only through peaceful co-existence that Nigeria can make the desired progress as a Nation at a steady pace.
“I urge you to continue in this spirit of love because, it is only by living in peaceful and harmonious co-existence that we are truly celebrating the essence of Christmas,” he said.
While appealing to Nigerians to be vigilant, he said the security challenges which the country is facing now should not be used as an avenue to create division along ethnic and religious lines.
He also urged the people to be safety and security conscious, especially during the festive period by not indulging in excessive enjoyment which could wreak havoc one way or the other.
“The period of Christmas commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ who is the symbol of Christianity, peace, love, also good tidings and there is no better way to celebrate the season than by showing love and being our brother’s keeper,” he said.
While wishing all “a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New year in advance”, Adebutu further urged that people should engage in activities that will unite Nigeria and not engage in activities which could cause disintegration.
