National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has appealed to Nigerians to eschew bitterness and imbibe the spirit of forgiveness.
He said this in his message to Nigerians as they prepare for the Christmas and New Year festivities.
In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Oliver Okpala, the chairman said, “While wishing Nigerians, particularly Christians the best of the Christmas festivities and prosperous New Year, may I utilise this opportunity to stress the urgent need for Nigerians to use this period to seek the face and intervention of God in institutionalising brotherly care and peace both in our polity and dear country Nigeria.
“I call on all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religion or ethnic affiliation to henceforth see their fellow Nigerians as their brothers and sisters belonging to one corporate entity known as Nigeria.
“I further entreat Nigerians to eschew bitterness, rancour and acrimony in their social, political and economic dealings with fellow Nigerians”.
