Christmas: IPAC tasks Nigerians to pray for progressive governance

The Inter Party Advisory (IPAC) has urged Nigerians to use the festive season to pray for the nation particularly security and economic challenges that have impeded progressive governance in the country.

National chairman-elect ( IPAC), Yusuf Mamman Dantalle in a press release also called on all Christians in the country on the occasion of this year’s Christmas celebrations and urges them to emulate the life of Jesus Christ and imbibe His virtues of love, peace, unity, and tolerance in their service to God and the nation.

He said Christmas is significant to believers as it marks the divine Birth of Jesus Christ who came to redeem the world from sin.

“IPAC urges Nigerians to use this occasion to pray for the nation particularly the security and economic challenges that have impeded progressive governance in the country.

“Council enjoins government at all levels to provide dividends of democracy to Nigerians to assuage their sufferings in accordance with section 14 (2)b of the 1999 constitution as amended which states that the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.

“As the umbrella body of all registered political parties in Nigeria, IPAC will continue to promote and deepen democracy in Nigeria in the quest for a strong, equitable, prosperous and just democratic nation,” he said.
