Christmas: Let’s Resolve To Be Our Brothers’ Keepers – Obasa Advises Nigerians
As the world marks this year’s Christmas, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has described Nigeria as a blessed nation loved by God.
In a message released by his media office on Thursday in commemoration of the 2021 Christmas celebration, Dr. Obasa urged Christians and other Nigerians to continue to replicate this love from God in their daily activities.
The Speaker noted that love is what the country needs at this phase of its journey to greatness.
“Jesus Christ, the celebrated face of the Christians around the world, preached and taught love as one of the greatest commandments from God.
“If we think deeply, we will understand that love is an ultimate solution to the many challenges facing mankind.
“All the commandments that God handed man can be summarised into the need to love Him and love our neighbours.
“There is, therefore, no gainsaying that if we maintain our resolve, individually and collectively, to love one another as emphasised by Jesus, the world would be a better place,” the Speaker said.
The Speaker congratulated Christians in Lagos and the country for witnessing another celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ just as he thanked leaders of the religion for their prayers for the country as well as their positive roles in relation to its growth and progress.
While urging Christians not to relent in their prayers for Nigeria, he advised Lagosians and other citizens of the country to ensure a peaceful celebration, remain conscious of their environment and continue to adhere to COVID-19 rules.
