Chibuike Amaechi, a former Governor of Rivers State, has sent a message of hope to Nigerians during the Christmas celebration.
Amaechi, in a statement, encouraged all Nigerians, regardless of faith and creed, to be hopeful that “help will ultimately come with belief and perseverance.”
The former transport minister noted that this Christmas has come at a “very critical time in our shared history.”
“The challenges are enormous. With increasing poverty and despair at this point in time, we are in dire straits, which is evident.
“However, the spirit of Christmas signals hope nevertheless; the hope that crying may linger all night, but definitely there’ll be joy at dawn,” he said.
