By Jude Ndukwe

A foremost youth leader in Plateau State, Pius Hommen, has urged Nigerians to shun all acts of division and hate, and embrace peace.

He said this while addressing a large gathering of youths from different parts of the country at an open air Christmas lunch he hosted in Jos, the Plateau State capital, on Sunday, December 24, 2017.

He also implored them to see each other as one irrespective of differences in tribes and religions.

“As we all get set to celebrate Christmas, I urge you, my fellow Christian brothers and sisters, to apply the teachings of Jesus Christ in all aspects of your lives.

“Please let us all be our brothers’ keepers”, he stated.

Continuing, Hommen reminded them that “the central theme of love and peace at Christmas which promotes harmony, reconciliation and goodwill among humanity must be embraced by all.

“Christmas marks the celebration of the new life that God gave mankind through the birth of Jesus Christ. I am therefore calling on Christians in Plateau State in particular and Nigeria in general to always remember that Christmas, which marks the birth of Jesus Christ, signifies hope and salvation brought to a world in dire need of redemption”.

While calling on all Nigerians to pray for the country, its leadership and the state governor, Simon Lalong, as he continues to provide more dividends of democracy to the people of Plateau State, Hommen concluded his address by urging everyone to use the season as a period to share God’s love with all, irrespective of religious affinity, assuring them of his continued support and counsel.
