Senate President, Godswill Akpabio has urged Christian faithful to extend love to one another during the yuletide as they celebrate the birth of the saviour of mankind, Jesus Christ.

He also urged Christians to pray for President Bola Tinubu to succeed in the renewed hope agenda of the administration so as to bring tangible dividends of democracy to the people of Nigeria.

Senator Akpabio made the call at the  Christmas day service at the Cathedral of Unity, Methodist Church Nigeria, Wuse 2, Abuja while addressing congregants on December 25 to mark the birth of Christ.

According to Senator Akpabio, “Today is a special day in Christendom when God gave the greatest gift, his only begotten son to mankind. He is born today in order to redeem mankind. And that birth is what we are celebrating today.

“As we celebrate this season I urge you all to offer your prayers and support for our President Tinubu. I want to thank the Arch Bishop for also praying for the President. Most of the problem you are seeing today in Nigeria were not caused by President Tinubu.

“When people write all sorts in the social media, I always say are they aware that this man has just assumed office as the President, but a lot of miracles are being expected from him because people remember how well he performed as the Governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007. And today Lagos is one of the largest economies in West Africa.

“For me under President Tinubu I envision a future that Nigeria is secured and people can sleep with their two eyes closed. I envision a future that our children will have gainful employment. I envision a future that Nigeria will be respected in the international community.

“I envision Nigeria that foreign direct investment will come in and many companies which had shut down will reopen for production and boost the economy. Nigeria shall be great again under President Tinubu. We need to pray for him and be patient,” he said.

The Methodist Archbishop of Abuja, Archbishop Dr Michael Olusegun Akinwale in his homily urged the church to pray for the leaders and support them. He prayed for President Tinubu and Senator Akpabio to lead Nigeria to become a peaceful and prosperous nation.
