The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has enjoined Nigerians to remain united and refrain from actions and utterances that can lead to violence and chaos as the country prepares for 2019 general elections.
The speaker who made this remark in a Christmas message signed by his chief press secretary, Musbau Rasaq reiterated the need to show love to one another and maintain peace.
He urged Nigerians, particularly Christians, to imbibe the spirit of love, tolerance, and sacrifice which made the life of Jesus Christ worthy of emulation adding that these are qualities essential for the development and growth of the country.
“Jesus Christ was an embodiment of peace, love, tolerance and sacrifice in his entire lifetime hence he is referred and adored throughout the world. For us to be great as a nation, we must not only imbibe these qualities but we must also put them into practice,” the speaker said.
According to him, “Throughout his life, Jesus Christ was tolerance even against his most bitter enemies, preached and shared love and peace and ended up sacrificing his life on the cross of Calvary which was the biggest supreme price one can pay for others to survive”.
The speaker also implored Nigerians, to be wary of any unusual action in their neighbourhood, so as to nip crime in the bud.
