The PDP advised its members to be as humble as Christ
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has enjoined its members occupying various positions in the country to emulate the humble life of Jesus Christ.
The party also called for love and peaceful co-existence, while urging Christians to pray for the progress of the nation.
The statements are contained in the party’s goodwill message released in Abuja Monday by its National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh.
“It is our fervent prayer that Christians, indeed, all Nigerians learn from the abundant and perfect examples of Christ in love, kindness and peaceful co-existence. It is our wish that beyond the jingle bells and festivities, that moment of sober reflection be spared to illuminate and re-kindle national fervour against corruption, religious intolerance, ethnic suspicion and other ills that have kept the nation down for decades,” he said.
According to the statement, the PDP is committed to the steady progress of the country where things work better than they do now.
“We shall commit more effort in ensuring that all our members, elected and appointed into positions of authority shall like Christ, be servants and not masters. We must warn however; that he that decides otherwise shall be forced by this new resolve, intended as no respecter of persons, to ship out,” the statement added.
