PDP seeks God’s intervention in nation’s affairs
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) advised Nigerians to use the Christmas and New Year celebrations to rekindle hope and trust in God’s divine intervention in the affairs of the country despite heightened insecurity and economic hardship.
“Although the manifest failures of the current administration have led to an excruciating widespread economic hardship and worsened insecurity across the country, Christmas rekindles faith that all hope is not lost for the nation,” PDP said.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party lamented that under the prevailing circumstances, most families have nothing to celebrate with, admitting that many are in deep mourning over their losses from escalated insecurity due to the failure of those entrusted with the leadership of the nation.
The party, however, urged Nigerians to keep hope alive and find strength in God’s unfailing intervention as demonstrated with the gift of salvation in the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Indeed, Christmas offers us a great lesson as a nation that no matter how long darkness, characterised by violence, oppression, economic repression, hunger, abuse of rights, disregard to the need of the people, and widespread corruption, as we have witnessed in the last five years, may appear to dominate, salvation will surely come as exemplified in the birth of the savior,” the PDP noted.
The party asked Nigerians to use this period to intensify their bond of unity as well as comfort and reach out to one another in love so that the joy that Christmas brings would not be lost.
The PDP restates its call on those leading the nation at this time to have some introspection, show remorse and review their “anti-people policies” that have brought anguish to the citizens.
