The Speaker In a Christmas message by his Media Aide, Kunle Alabi urged Christians to reflect and re-dedicate themselves to the teachings and lifestyle of Christ, which were anchored on sacrifice, love, peace and truth.

He stressed that at this point of Nigeria, everyone should seek God’s intervention in alleviating the economic hardship that Nigerians are going through.

Owoeye said “The time we are in as a country presently calls for prayers. We must all ensure that we do all we can as citizens and leaders to move the country forward from the present economic and security challenges facing our country.

“it is true that Nigerians are passing through a difficult economic phase in the history of the nation, we are in a situation that demands hardwork, divine intervention and concerted effort of the people coupled with love and sharing.

The times we are in call for prayers and the exercise of our faith in the Almighty God who rules in the affairs of men including our dear Nation”. The Speaker emphasized.
