A former member of the House of Representatives in Ogun State, Hon. Oladidupo Adebutu, has said, “the security challenges facing Nigeria this time should not be used as an avenue to divide the nation along ethnic lines.”
Adebutu, however, urged the people to be security conscious, urging them not to indulge in activities that could wreak havoc, especially during this festive period.
In his Christmas message on Saturday, the businessman appealed to all Nigerians to embrace what he called the virtues of peaceful co-existence, asking them to refrain from fanning the embers of disunity.
According to him, Nigeria can only make the desired progress through living together peacefully as a nation at a steady pace.
“I urge you to continue in this spirit of love because it is only by living in peaceful and harmonious co-existence that we are truly celebrating the essence of Christmas,” he said.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain maintained that “there is no better way to celebrate this season than by showing love and being our brother’s keeper.”
He enjoined Nigerians to always engage in activities that could unite the nation, asking them to desist from any act that could cause disintegration.
