PDP pledges festive peace

24 December 2013, 12:00

Abuja - The National Working Committee of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has directed all officers elected and appointed on the platform of the party to use the Christmas celebrations to focus on the underprivileged.

“The coming of Jesus Christ brought salvation, joy and happiness to mankind and urged all genuine party members to in the true spirit of Christmas, see beyond the colours and sounds and focus on bringing succour to those who are in need,” stated its national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.

The party added that this was in line with its manifesto which principally focused on the welfare, happiness and prosperity of all Nigerians.

“Christmas presents the ideal time to express love to all, especially the needy and the underprivileged. We must therefore ensure that we use the opportunity presented by this year’s celebration to make sacrifices in love and touch the lives of those around us as illustrated by the Lord Jesus Christ,” said Metuh.
