President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerians to enjoy Christmas and New Year celebrations across the country.

The President urged citizens to comfort one another over failed hopes and dreams and also remember and pray for Nigerian armed forces personnel.

Tinubu, who made the call on Sunday in his Christmas message, said that Christmas is a special time of the year for all Nigerians and that it is a time when people of all faiths enjoy the company of their families and friends.

According to him, 2023 has been a time of transformation and relentless change in Nigeria and he is aware that the necessary reforms his administration is implementing to achieve a more prosperous, peaceful nation for all have imposed unique sacrifices on Nigerians.

The President said that his government would however continue to implement measures to ease the burden on the most vulnerable citizens, address current hardship and alleviate the suffering of all Nigerians.

He said, “Christmas is a special time of the year for all of us. For Christians, this time of the year marks the birth of Jesus Christ and celebrates the hope and redemption that are the hallmarks of Christ’s life.

“For people of all faiths, this is an opportunity to enjoy the company of family, celebrate life, and delight in the gifts of love and friendship that make life worthwhile.

“This is also a time to look out for each other because amidst the festivities, this time of year for many will be tinged with sadness: some mourning the loss of loved ones and others grieving the hopes that failed to materialise and the dreams that fell short.

“In the spirit of Christmas, reflecting the best of Christ, let us all endeavour to extend the warm embrace of kindness to those around us who need it and let the multiple acts of kindness serve as a light that guides us into a happy and wonderful new year.

“This year has been a time of transformation and relentless change in our country. And I am aware that the necessary reforms we are implementing to achieve a more prosperous, peaceful nation for all have imposed unique sacrifices.

“My administration will continue to implement palliative measures to ease the burden on the most vulnerable, address current hardships and alleviate the suffering of all our nation’s people.

“Fellow Nigerians, as we navigate this transition to stability, prosperity, and Renewed Hope, I urge you once more to hold fast and rest assured of my commitment to govern with vision, dedication, and empathy.

“Be confident that by the strength of our joint endeavour, we will shortly emerge into a new dawn of prosperity, peace, and irreversible progress.

“As you celebrate this season, please spare a moment of remembrance and prayer for the men and women of our nation’s armed forces, bearing arms in our names and ensuring our safety. My God protect them and bring them back to their families.

“And let us together commemorate the memory of those who, in their service, have paid the highest price for our nation. May God bless their souls and comfort their families and loved ones.

“Let the light of Christmas guide our paths as we bring this year to a close and usher in the new year. I wish you all a merry Christmas.”
