My New Year Message To Nigerians

Abuja, Nigeria, 31 December, 2018:

My dear fellow citizens,

As 2018 comes to an end and 2019 beckons, on behalf of my family and I, let me wish you and your family a very happy New Year in advance.

In 2018, we became the world headquarters for extreme poverty, however, I am convinced that in 2019, if we chart a new course, we can become the world headquarters for hope and extreme devotion to the cause of lifting our people out of poverty. Read More

Atiku Abubakar’s Christmas Message To Nigerians

Atiku Abubakar’s Christmas Message To Nigerians

PRESS RELEASE 

Abuja, Nigeria, 24 December, 2018: This Christmas, I urge all Nigerians to spare a thought for our military and security forces who are on the frontlines on the war on terror. I had cause to telephone Lt. Col. Ibrahim Sakaba’s widow this Yuletide season and I was touched by the devotion and love she had for her husband who paid the supreme sacrifice for Nigeria.

I urge all Nigerians to think about these heroes who make the relative peace we live in possible. They endure so that we all can enjoy. Because they gave their all, we all have some peace. So, when next you see a soldier, boost his or her morale by acknowledging their sacrifices and thanking them. Nigeria owes so much to the gallant officers and the men and women of our armed forces.

They epitomise the spirit of Christmas, which is sacrificial giving. Let us also celebrate the sacrifice our armed forces make for Nigeria.

Finally, seeing that the essence of Christmas is that Christ came to earth to reconcile us to God, should we not, as beneficiaries of such divine reconciliation, reciprocate it by being reconciled with each other during this Yuletide period and beyond? There are too much divisions in our nation today and it is up to each and everyone of us to inject the healing and unifying serum of love for our neighbour into the nation’s consciousness this Christmas.

We may be Muslim, Christian or traditional religion adherents. But we are all creatures of God deserving of the love of God and of our neighbours. Let that be the attitude we embrace this Christmas and beyond.

Once again, on behalf of me and my entire family we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe, prosperous and happy New Year. 

Atiku Abubakar

Waziri of Adamawa

Vice President of Nigeria, 1999-2007 & Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party.
