President Goodluck Jonathan
By Muhammad Bello
President Goodluck Jonathan has appealed to Nigerians to embrace peace and pray for the unity and progress of the country as they celebrate the yuletide season.
Jonathan made the appeal Thursday during a Christmas carol service held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, saying the celebration of the season is something done both by Christians and non-Christians alike.
Making biblical allusions to the life and times of David, who was a warrior king that fought all through his lifetime, the president said when the Israelis were told that a new king will succeed him they expected that Jesus will be belligerent, but he came to them with a new message.
“He came to them with a message of peace,” Jonathan remarked.
