Mr Haruna Okatahi, the Publicity Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC) National Youth Caucus, has urged Christians to use the occasion of Christmas to pray for Nigeria to overcome its challenges.
Okatahi in a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday, also called for prayers for security personnel in the North East and other parts of the country as they battle to rid the nation of terrorism and violence.
According to him, it is possible for Nigerians to live in peace if they learn to tolerate and appreciate each other, respect constituted authority, and be their brother’s keeper both in words and actions.
He stressed the need for wealthy Nigerians to extend love to the poor at this season, especially the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), who have suffered hardship as a result of activities of insurgents.
He wished all travellers a safe trip and a memorable holiday as they celebrate with their families and friends.
