Nigeria: Gaidam Urges Christians, Muslims to Have Unity of Purpose

Maiduguri — Governor Ibrahim Gaidam of Yobe State yesterday called on Christians and Muslims to continue to live and work together in peace and unity in order to attain sustainable social development.

In his Christmas message, which was signed by his Special Adviser on press affairs and information, Mallam Abdullahi Bego, Gaidam said, "With the unity of purpose that all the people of the state have shown in the wake of recent security challenges, Yobe State and indeed the entire country would surmount the challenges and emerge stronger," Gaidam said.

The governor said this year's Christmas, like last year's, came at a time Nigeria was going through challenging times, especially in the area of security of life and property.

The governor noted the deep spiritual significance of the Christmas season and prays the Almighty God for successful and peaceful celebrations and urged all Christians not to relent in prayers and devotion to the Almighty God for divine intervention and deliverance.
