Christmas: Sen. Adeola urges Christians to renew faith in Christ



The Chairman, Senate Committee on Finance, Sen. Solomon Adeola, has urged Christians to renew their faith in Jesus Christ as they celebrate Christmas.

The senator, in a Christmas message on Thursday, also urged his constituents and Nigerians in general to observe all prescribed guidelines against COVID-19 during the period.

Adeola (APC-Lagos West) said that “Christmas symbolises the celebration of the birth of a new dawn for the salvation of all humanity, especially for Christians”.

While saying the occasion should be joyous with merry-making, the senator called for caution in such display of positive emotion in view of threats of the second wave of COVID-19.

He said in line with the Federal Government’s directive banning all large gatherings over the second wave of the virus, he had cancelled his annual end-of-the-year party for his constituents.

“The year 2020 is a challenging year globally; in compliance with prescribed COVID-19 protocols, I have cancelled the end-of-the-year party that I organise annually to meet and celebrate with thousands of my constituents.

“However, as is equally my tradition, I have made provisions in cash and kind for joyous celebration in homes of my constituents”, he said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adeola noted that Nigerians were going through a difficult period as COVID-19 had caused many citizens to lose their sources of income.

He, however, expressed optimism that 2021 would be a better year, especially as COVID-19 vaccines had been developed, and that the country would most likely exit recession by the first quarter.

“I urge all Nigerians to be patient and look forward to a better future.

”With abiding faith in Jesus Christ, all our challenges will be a thing of the past as we move to, hopefully, a glorious New Year”, he said.(NAN)
