Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has for the umpteenth time reminded Nigerians of the sanctity of being their brothers’ keeper in spite of the socio-economic and security challenges.
To this end, he canvassed religious tolerance between and among faithful in a manner that gives every adherent freedom and liberty to worship.
These were contained in a goodwill message to Nigerians on the commemoration of this year’s Christmas celebration.
Senator Mark advised religious leaders across board to preach the message of peace, unity and good neighbourliness in order to make Nigeria a safe haven.
He enjoined Christian faithful to embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ, “which denote sacrifice, peace, unity, reconciliation, forgiveness and good neighbourliness at all times.”
Senator Mark urged Nigerians to imbibe the culture of can-do spirit even in the face of daunting socio-political and economic challenges.
To governments at all levels, he counseled to provide the needed compass to lead the citizens aright in order to facilitate the nation’s economic recovery.
On the security challenges, he urged citizens especially the clergy and the traditional rulers to collaborate with security agencies in order to stamp out the menace.
