Christmas: Ekweremadu Harps on Humility, Love, and Peace 

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has called on Nigerians to emulate the great virtues of humility, love, peace, forgiveness, and reconciliation, which, according to him, were the real reasons for the coming of Jesus Christ.

Ekweremadu, who made the call in his Christmas message to Nigerians signed by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu said Christmas was an opportunity to reflect on the humility of Christ and limitless love of God, who gave his only begotten son to be born as man in order to save and reconcile mankind unto Himself.

He said: “Christmas is a lesson in unusual humility of the divine born as man, and of a king born in a manger. It is a reawakening to that unconditional love and self-sacrifice, which we must all embrace in order to move Nigeria and humanity forward.

“I believe that like Nazareth, many good things will still come out of Nigeria because this is a land of boundless opportunities and great possibilities. But we must first build a nation where no man is oppressed, where justice reigns, where each man is his brother’s keeper, and where every citizen has the latitude to become the best he could irrespective of ethnic, religious, and political background and social status”.

While wishing Christian faithful and indeed all Nigerians a merry Christmas, Ekweremadu also prayed God to guide the nation’s leaders on the path of Christly virtues of humility, fairness, justice, and kindness for the peace and speedy development of the country.
