Tinubu has revealed how Covid-19 can be defeated permanently.

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to let kindness reign as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Tinubu, in a Christmas message on Thursday in Lagos, also beseeched all to place in their hearts and minds the commitment to be more tolerant and less judgmental of their fellow being.

He said: “Give those who currently lack kindness not criticism; give them bread and meat, not bitterness and despair.

Tinubu, while congratulating Christians, explained that Christmas is a day to be thankful for as Jesus Christ provided a precious gift unto us.

He urged all to act in the spirit and teachings of Jesus.

The former governor of Lagos urged Nigerians to celebrate in moderation and adhere to all COVID-19 protocols to limit the spread of the disease.

“In its essence, Christmas is a celebration of life and this year we best celebrate life by doing what we must do to protect ourselves and our loved ones from this terrible virus.

“Yet, we also must take solace in the fact that nothing, not even this virus, can rob us of the spirit of Christmas and the hope and brotherly love it represents.

“With the emergence of the coronavirus, 2020 has been as a plane flying through turbulent skies, a year that has raised challenges like no other year has.

“Yet, by the grace of God, we have persevered and shall continue to move forward,” he said

According to Tinubu, “it is difficult to say “Merry Christmas” because the moment which we now inhabit does not lend itself to merriment.

He, however, wished each and every Nigerian a peaceful, prosperous and meaningful Christmas.

“I pray that we act toward each other as Jesus instructed.

“If we can do this, we will emerge from the current turbulence a much better people, society and nation,” he said.
