Tambuwal urges Nigerians to pray for peaceful co-existence

25 December 2012, 13:03

Abuja - Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has urged Nigerians, especially Christians, to pray for the peaceful co-existence and unity in the nation.    

Tambuwal made the appeal in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, on Monday in Abuja to commemorate this year's Christmas celebration.   

He enjoined Nigerians to renew their faith in their country and work towards building a nation of their dreams.

Tambuwal said with renewed faith, commitment and hard work, the country would soon realise its full potentials.

"The Christmas period is a time for deep reflection on the teachings of Christianity and what Jesus Christ stood for," he said.  

The speaker urged leaders at all levels of governance to make the interest of the people their priority at all times.

"In spite of the challenges of development confronting the country, progress has been made in some critical sectors," he said.  

Tambuwal said the House of Representatives would continue to play its role in efforts to provide quality representation to the people.

He congratulated Christians who joined their colleagues the world over in celebrating this important occasion.

"May the blessings of the season shower on our homes and our nation," the speaker said.
