The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has urged Nigerians to use the period of Christmas to reflect on our common goals and shared destiny.
The party has made the call in a statement issued on Christmas day by the ADP Lagos Spokesman, Prince Adelaja Adeoye.
It said: “We urge all citizens to imbibe the spirit of peace, unity and love for one another; virtues that Jesus Christ exhibited throughout his stay on earth. It is with these virtues and more that we can move our country forward.
“Jesus Christ is the perfect example of sacrifice and that’s why he laid down his life for the sake of mankind. Political Leaders must begin to be selfless; shun corrupt practices, therefore bringing true development to the people. Nigerians, irrespective of religious faith should use this period to spread love and care to the less privileged amongst us.
“Our party frowns at this development and we say that it is totally unacceptable. These are issues that our party has set out to solve once and for all when given the opportunity to serve as we have now presented Lagosians with credible candidates from governorship, Senate, House of Representatives and Assembly. We urge Lagosians to use their electoral power to change their fortune for good at the next poll because our party, ADP is the credible alternative. Having survived the challenges that 2018 presented, we are optimistic that 2019 will be a better year for all Lagosians. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.”
