In the message titled ‘Compliments of the Season Dear Friends, Patriots and Christians Around the World’, the former President emphasised that the birthday of Jesus Christ “is symbolic of love, victory, sacrifice and the sufficiency of joy and peace to the world.”
“In the midst of global challenges which we, as a nation, have also had a fair share, Christmas presents to us rays of hope, joy and peace. The birthday of Jesus Christ is symbolic of love, victory, sacrifice and the sufficiency of joy and peace to the world.
“As we celebrate, let’s, therefore, live with optimism, sacrifice, peace and love towards one another and our nation. Let us manifest justice, patience and faith which are virtues exemplified by Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. This is the way to build our societies better from the horrors associated with the pandemic and overcome our national challenges.”
