The Kogi State Chairman, Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), Comrade Gabriel Amari has felicitated with Nigerians, particularly Christians at the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Amari, in a statement on Sunday, urged Nigerians to use the period of Christmas to rekindle acts of love, kindness to one another and to the vulnerable in the society.

He said the season symbolises love, care and compassion for persons, especially the weak, vulnerable and less-privileged.

Amari urged Christians to celebrate beyond mere merriment of the yuletide by abiding in Jesus Christ whom he described as the reason for the season. 

“As we mark the Christmas, all true Christians must remember the reason for the season as well as the person, whose birth we are celebrating, who is Jesus Christ.

“This season is another opportunity to increase our acts of kindness and touch the less privileged in our society,” he said.

He urged Kogites and Nigerians to pray and support their leaders as they strive to find lasting solution to the myriad of challenges confronting the nation.

Amari also called on Nigerians to continue to reflect on positive tenets that unite the nation and strengthen the polity.

While urging Nigerians to live a Christ-like life, which he noted was a life of sacrifice, selfless service, love and forgiveness, Amari used the medium to tasked Christians to offer special prayers during the yuletide for greater peace, love, unity, peaceful co-existence and progress of Nigeria.

“This period calls for introspection and continued prayers for our dear nation.This Christmas, let us acknowledge his birth but let us also give that acknowledgement its fullest meaning by recognizing how Jesus lived and what he lived for. He reached out to all. 

“Jesus fed the poor and healed the sick. He spread compassion and charity and preached love and justice. There are no finer aims than these and we can do no better than to do all we can to follow his example,” 

“I call on all Christians; indeed, all Kogites and all Nigerians to reflect on the virtues and teachings of Jesus Christ in their lives and activities so that Nigeria and indeed the world would be a better place for all of us.

“On behalf of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria in Kogi State, I wish all Nigerians, especially those of Christian faith, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ahead,” he said.
