Goodluck Jonathan, former Nigerian president, has asked Nigerians not to be despair by challenges. He said this in his Christmas homilies on Sunday.
“At Christmas, we celebrate love, hope and joy, which the birth of Jesus heralds to the world. As individuals and as a nation, we face different challenges. But we should not allow that to weaken our faith in God and our country, as well as imperil our shared promise of greatness and prosperity.
“Let us approach this season of Christmas with optimism and renewed faith in ourselves and our country. Let us exhibit love, tolerance, a sense of unity and peace towards our neighbours and all around us during this season and beyond,” the former president said in a statement issued by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze.
