Ndoma-Egba, Tinubu echoes call for compassion in Christmas message

Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Distinguished Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba , urged Nigerians to follow Jesus Christ’s example of charity and compassion in his annual Christmas message.

“That is why we need to remember the love that Jesus taught. We must love our neighbors as ourselves. Nigeria cannot move forward as a country until we all realize that there is good in all of us” he said.

Ndoma-Egba also urged Nigerians to use the yuletide season to rededicate themselves to the service of humanity in line with the true teachings of Jesus Christ which emphasizes selflessness, piety, brotherly kindness and love towards one another.

“more than ever, and even as we head into the new year, Nigerians must pay close attention to the message of love, peace and sacrifice, which Jesus preached during his time on earth.

“In the course of the year, a number of unfortunate incidents have snowballed into accentuating divisions in our country especially in the areas of politics, religion and tribe, there seem to have been constant restiveness, by people of different groups exchanging threats or actual harm. In it all, we thank the Almighty God for bringing us thus far and pray for better years ahead.

“I am confident that Nigeria will emerge a better and stronger nation that every citizen would be proud of. I believe that the Nigeria of our dream is achievable and would be achieved in the life of this Government”

Meanwhile,  the All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has called for support for President Muhammadu Buhari so that the country can overcome its current challenges.



Tinubu’s Christmas message appeared to be aimed at a public on edge after recent fuel scarcity and insecurity in the country.

The ruling party has tried to counter inflammatory rhetoric from Nigerians and opposition parties, pleading with Nigerians  to be patient.

“The challenges that face the country are difficult ones. But we keep the hope. We must learn from the example of Jesus who faced and overcame the greatest evil. So let us unite to overcome our challenges.”

“We must support President Buhari and complement his efforts in his resolve to stimulate the economy and reposition the country. The president needs our support, understanding and prayers. We must fully break the terrorism of Boko Haram and completely put down the last vestiges of the terrorists.
