President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday urged Nigerians to pray to God for the country to surmount its challenges especially economic recession, next year.
Buhari in his Christmas message called on Nigerians to shun violence, live harmoniously with one another and be law abiding.
“I heartily rejoice with all Nigerians, particularly our Christian brothers and sisters, on this year’s celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. As we celebrate this year’s Christmas, I believe that it is very appropriate for us to reflect on the love of God aptly espoused in the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus Christ.
“During this period, we should remember to offer special prayers to God for all our heroic citizens who paid the supreme price to restore peace and security in the North East and other flash points in the country. Let us also remember in our prayers the security forces in the frontline in the continuing battle to rid our nation of terrorism and violence.
“We must not forget the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in our midst and those who have suffered untold hardship as a result of activities of insurgents and terrorists.
“Our immediate priority is to alleviate the poverty of Nigerians by quickly stimulating the economy. I assure Nigerians that our government is doing its best to make life easier for all.
“Let us therefore, renew our hope in the God-ordained unity, progress and prosperity of our great nation. I wish all travelers safe movements and a memorable holiday as we celebrate with our family and friends”.
