CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL CHAIRMAN, APGA
This year’s Christmas is coming at a very critical time in our nation’s history.
Despite the social, economic and political challenges facing our nation, we still have every reason to be grateful to God, at least, for keeping us alive and united to face these challenges.
The coming year will be fruitful, peaceful and progressive for Nigerians as we hope that the efforts made in the past five years to take Nigeria to the ‘next level’ will begin to bear fruits.
We urge the federal government to factor the sufferings of the people into whatever programmes it plans for 2020 as anything outside of this will increase their hardship.
The federal government owes the people of Nigeria adequate security; more amenities such as steady electricity, potable water, and medicare; more food; quality education; and general atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
We urge all Nigerians to remain steadfast in prayer and patriotic service to our nation, while hoping for the best in 2020.
We single out the administration of Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State for special commendation for the able way it has piloted the affairs of the state, especially in the areas of security, road construction, food production, education, general infrastructure and regular payment of workers’ salaries and leave allowances, pensions and gratuities, asking God to bless and keep the governor.
We pray God to grant our leaders greater courage and altruism to work for the good of Nigerians, because posterity will not judge them well if they failed in the end.
We wish all Nigerians, particularly our teeming members in Nigeria and abroad, a fruitful Christmas and happy new year.
Ozonkpu Dr. Victor Ike Oye, National Chairman, APGA
