Christmas: Jang urges Nigerians to pray, work for Jonathan’s re-election

Jonah Jang

Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau on Thursday urged Nigerians to pray and work for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan next year as they celebrate this year’s Christmas.

Mr. Jang, who made the plea at a Christmas Service at COCIN Church in Du, Jos South, said Jonathan had done well and called on Nigerians to vote him again.

“Come out and vote for him, don’t just say amen because it is only when you vote that people of your choice will occupy the right positions.

“Again you can only challenge the leaders when they are going wrong if you voted for them.”

The governor said that very soon politicians would be traversing the nooks and corners of the state and the country in general in search of votes from the electorates.

He, however, called on politicians irrespective of their political parties to conduct themselves peacefully during the campaigns.

Mr. Jang also advised parents not to allow their children to be used as thugs to cause trouble during, before and after the electioneering period.

“To you the youth, don’t avail yourselves to be used by selfish politicians because those using you will never use their children,” he advised.

The governor expressed satisfaction with the way this year’s Christian pilgrimage to holy land was conducted.

“I spoke with those who have gone on holy pilgrimage to Israel and they said that everything was going on very well and they send their greetings,” he said.

Samuel Bwosh, the clergy who presided over the service, said that many people still have some misconceptions about the true meaning of Christmas.

Mr. Bwosh, who took his reading from the Gospel of Luke 2:4-20, said Christmas was becoming more secular than spiritual.

“To many, Christmas is all about spending money, commercialisation and greed; to others Christmas is a time to party, drink and eat,” he said.

According to him, Christmas is a time for giving, and a time for good tidings, adding that God gives his son to save mankind.

The cleric advised Christians to use the period of the good news of the birth of Christ to draw nearer to God and be saved.

    Before we listen to you, you need to start with yourself, go and educate yourself on the doctrine of conflict of interest, and ethics…

  • Spoken word

    GEJ hasn’t worked for us and you want us to work for his re-election. How does this make sense

  • Peter Irene

    We have been celebrating Christmas in complete darkness all over the country. It is only a mad man that will vote for PD P for another four years of squandermenia.

  • me

  • don gordon

    Look at what trash this PIG is saying.

  • Comfortkay

    If everyone is a pastor Gov David Jonah Jang should be the last to preach in this country. His Son is in his own cabinet. Jang was a governor far back as 1985 and 29 years after still governor of plateau state.
    We are remember his role in the Governor forum saga which GEJ supported, some criminal elements supporting People Destruction Party (PDP) and presidency cannot see beyond their nose, God has taken away the leadership of this country from PDP and in few month Nigerian will have new leader, we shall continued to bash PDP and not allow this country to drift to abyss.,

  • GEJisaDISASTER

    GEJ is going down in 2015 while Jang and his son will be heading to prison

    NO BOMB ATTACKS IN GOVERNMENT HOUSES, BUT THERE IS BOMBING IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT STATIONS. NO BOMBINGS IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL MINISTRY, BUT THE MARKETS WERE BOMBED. NO BOMB IN ANY POLITICIAN OR GOVERNMENT VILLA BUT THERE IS BOMB IN CHURCHES BEFORE AND MOSQUES NOW. NO ANY BOMBING IN ANY PART OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA, BUT THERE IS RAMPANT BOMBINGS IN THE WHOLE OF THE NORTH. NO ANY SOUTHERN NIGERIA’S KING OR CHIEF OR OBA OR EZE UNDER THREAT OR KILLED, BUT THERE ARE MANY NORTHERN MUSLIMS EMIRS, CHIEFS, WARD HEADS, KILLED OR CHASED AWAY FROM HIS PALACE OR UNDER THREAT. QUESTIONS MUST BE RAISED AND ANSWERS CAN DEFINE AND ACCURATELY POINT THE SPONSORS, THE ESXECUTIVES AND FOOT SOLDIERS AND THE WHOLE MYSTERY OF BOKO HARAM INSURGENCY.67

  • ibrahim

    chairman governors forum of Thieves Amon Nigerians – building silos of exotic cars and building 10 storey building, Jang is staching salaries and pension to rig his nephew as Governor, himself as Senator, the son a commisioner would become the secretary to the government, if Jonathan wins, the daughter in law shall be the minster from Plateau. jang encouraged his tribesmen to kill and eat human flesh – whose only crime they are Muslims and hausa/fulani living on God’s land!

    • Hambolu Segun

      You’ve made good points. But why play religion into it.
      Is Jos issue not of indigene, citizen, farmland and grazing land.
      It really has nothing to do with religion.
      That is the creation of politicians that are seeking relevance through religion.

      • ibrahim

        with the latest doings of Jang, it is becoming clear that the issue is not religious inspite of the religious idenitities of the warriors but religion provided the war cries while the hostilities lasted. similar scenario plays in the current politcal campaign – just study the social media – the main attack on Buhari revolves round his religious identity but Jonathan is free to belong … despite his crystal clear incompetence!

        • Hambolu Segun

          Don’t give up on Nigeria!

          • ibrahim

            I love the Nigerian unity. I love unity of humanity – all are created and place by God the way he finds them. I pray God to enable a free and fair election so that we can work to reconstruct Nigeria – I say WE because I was opportuned to stand at Indianapolis where Lincoln once stood on his way to assume his Presidency.

            I appeal to you to constantly bear in mind that

            Not with politicians, not with Presidents, not
            with office seekers
            But with
            you is the question:
            Shall the Union shall the liberties of this Country
            Be preserved to the latest generations.

  • I Hate Sycophant Truly

    I think this is madness canvassing for votes in the church. No more respect for the church of God. This is a man that has not paid workers salary till date.
