Yuletide: Osun APC Preaches Peace, Love Among Citizens

Published

All Progressives Congress in Osun state has asked Christians throughout the country especially those in the state, to let the outpouring of love towards fellow countrymen and women dominate this year’s celebration of Christmas,.

The party also called on Nigerians of other faith to emphatise with their Christian brothers and sisters in a spirit of mutual love, without which their efforts to achieve peaceful co-existence in the country will be futile.

According to the party, in a statement by its spokesman, Kunle Oyatomi Esq, made available to CityMirrorNews in Osogbo on Monday said, “as we celebrate Christmas, the dominant spirit should be that of love, for the birth of Christ was and is the manifestation of God’s love for mankind, regardless of race, tribe or country.”

“Until we cultivate that love and make it shine through this earthly life, we may not have the full benefit of the grace that God’s love provides”.

“Although we have set a specific period for Christmas – or the outward celebration of God’s love for us – it should not end with the physical activities of that period alone”, the APC said.

The party therefore urged citizens of the state “to interact with their fellow citizens in kindness, love and respect for each other, so that the progress we have made in the last eight years would continue apace”.

Besides, the party extended greetings of goodwill and a peaceful and prosperous 2019 to all Nigerians and prayed that ‘God should protect, guide and lead the country into a new year in which Nigerians will begin to see themselves as members of the same human family.
