The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abbas Tajudeen, has called for prayers and supplication for Nigeria as Christians celebrate this year’s Christmas to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.

In his Christmas greeting to Christians on Sunday, the Speaker noted that Jesus Christ had a humble beginning before becoming a global and generational phenomenon.

He said it behoves on Nigerians to emulate the virtues of Jesus Christ, which he said were love, sacrifice, peace making, tolerance, building consensus among the people, selflessness, among others.

Abbas also urged Nigerians to reflect on the current situation of the country as they celebrate Christmas, with the hope of a greater future.

“Let us use this occasion to ponder on the issues affecting our daily lives as a nation and how we can best address them, both as leaders and followers, the government and the governed.

“As a people, we have come a long way. Therefore, we should continue to unite and remain one. Let’s continue to pray and support our leaders. Let’s emulate the life of Jesus Christ and imbibe his teachings, which were about love and sacrifice,” he said.
