Ike Ekweremadu, the former Deputy President of the Senate, said on Saturday that unity in love and prayers can help the country progress.
This was indicated in his Christmas message, which he posted on Facebook.
The senator, who shared a photo of himself with his wife and mother, stated that Nigeria can move forward when Nigerians unite in love and prayer.
He wrote, “Merry Christmas to you all. This is yet another season to renew and imbibe the values of love, peace, hope, and sacrifice, which Christmas rekindles, in order to build a more egalitarian and prosperous society.
“The challenges of the moment notwithstanding, the joy of Christ’s birth remains our strength.
“We can always overcome by uniting in love and prayers across political, religious, and ethnic divides to move the nation forward.
“From my loving wife, dear mother, and the entire family, this is wishing you and your loved ones a hitch-free Christmas celebration and a happy New Year.”
