Prince Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has charged Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Christmas to offer special prayers for good leaders with love of the people to emerge.
Special Adviser on Media to Prince Uche Secondus, Ike Abonyi, in a statement, said,
“We need political leaders that can bring smiles on the faces of the people and such leaders can only come from God through our sincere supplications.”
Secondus in a Christmas message, told Nigerians to use this period to seek God ‘s mercy so that He can provide leaders that would bring comfort and peace in the country.
He stated that the 2019 general elections provide the people an ample opportunity to rescue not just democracy but the country, adding that the country’s desire could only be met by God if Nigerians use this Yuletide to cry to for his grace.
The National Chairman explained that as Christmas marks the birthday anniversary of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, there is no better time to seek God’s intervention to send a leader who would save this country than this period.
He observed, “Yuletide time like this is therefore very auspicious for Nigerians to bury their political, ethnic and religious differences and go on their knees to seek God’s face in the country’s challenges.
“The indignation in our faces across board shows it all that the people are sad and disappointed, let us therefore pray for a peaceful election to usher in joy in the land.”
The PDP national chairman urged Christians to use the reason for this season to show love to one another and build on those things that unite rather than what divides them.
“On behalf of the leadership and members of our great party, l wish all Nigerians joyful and trouble free Christmas celebrations.”
