From Jonathan and Abdullahi Idris Magaji:
Christians in Bauchi State have been called upon to emulate the life of Jesus Christ who stood for peace and justice for all.
The Chairman Caretaker Committee Bogoro Local Government Area Markus Bitrus Lusa made the call in his message to mark the 2023 Christmas celebration.
Markus Bitrus Lusa said Christmas is observed to mark the birth of Jesus Christ who came for the redemption of mankind.
He urged Christians to use the occasion to pray for the country and it’s unity by eschewing characters that will undermine the progress of Bauchi state and Nigeria in general.
Markus Bitrus appealed to all to pray for President Bola Ahmed Tinibu and state Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed to help Nigeria overcome it’s presence challenges.
Bitrus also enjoined Christians to devote more time to forgive one another, support the poor and respect one another as taught by Jesus Christ.
