Speaking at the Presidential Christmas Carol held at the Banquet Hall of the presidential villa, Jonathan enjoined Nigerians to avoid the things that would lead to division of the country and embrace unity and peaceful co-existence.
“I urge Nigerians to, in the spirit of Christmas, embrace peace. The wars will not save us. Christ brought peace to free everybody. We have challenges, but we have everything in place to overcome them.
“In the New Year, we will see the changes in the airports, seaports, power and security as we progress. Surely, 2013 will be a better year for the country”, he said.
