President Muhammadu Buhari has raised hope of better days ahead, telling Nigerians not to lose hope. The President gave the advice in his Christmas Message, in which he also called on Nigerians to rededicate themselves to the virtues of peace, love, honesty, justice, equity, piety, humility and service to others, which Jesus Christ taught.

“There can be no doubt that a greater manifestation of these virtues and ideals in our lives will immensely help us to become a more united, peaceful, secure and progressive nation. Let us also reach out in love and compassion to fellow Nigerians who are in distress at this period of our nation’s history,” Buhari said.

Continuing, he said: “I particularly urge you all to remember victims of terrorism and insurgency in the country, especially Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

“The Federal Government will continue to collaborate with state governments and other stakeholders to ease the harsh conditions in IDP camps, while the ultimate objective remains to quickly put an end to insurgency and return the IDPs to their homes.

“We must never again allow any group to hold the nation to ransom under whatever guise.

“Let us also not allow current socio-economic and security challenges to dampen our expectations for a better Nigeria.

“This administration has taken a number of measures to restore hope to our people. The 2016 Budget defines our commitment to giving Nigeria a new lease of life.

“Our change slogan is not a campaign gimmick but a promise that must be kept. We are determined to bring about tangible changes in the lives of our people.

“In this regard, efforts will be intensified to recover stolen funds, block revenue leakages and enthrone due process, transparency and accountability.

“Public office is a public trust that must be held to the highest ethical standards.

“I wish all Nigerians a Merry Christmas.”
