Our president could not be left out among those who has messages for Nigerians celebrating this Christmas, he has a message for Christians as Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati said the President joined Christians and all other Nigerians in giving thanks to God whose grace and benevolence has helped the nation to overcome the many challenges it has faced since last year.

The annual commemoration of Jesus Christ's birth is the most auspicious time for Nigerians, as Jonathan said. Every individual, and the whole nation rededicate their lives to the virtues and ideals which the Messiah preached and exemplified during his earthly ministry.

"Let us all therefore resolve this Christmas to make the ideals of peace, harmony, tolerance, love and goodwill to all even more manifest in our interactions with others.

"It remains my sincere belief that no height of human accomplishment is beyond us as a nation, if we can overcome our differences, such as they are, and forge a binding national consensus to put the progress and well-being of the country above all other considerations," the statement by the President said.

He promised to do everything within his powers to ensure that participants at the planned national conference make significant contributions towards national peace, unity and progress.
