Ex-Nigeria President, Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday, schooled Nigerians on how to celebrate Christmas.

Jonathan in a statement by his Special Adviser, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, in Abuja on Thursday, said the celebration is to show love for one another, adding that the spirit of Christmas required people to rededicate themselves to friendship, kindness and compassion.

Christmas is a commemoration that connects the world to love, selflessness, sacrifice and solidarity; which are the virtues that Christ unambiguously propagated.

“Jesus’ message of salvation speaks to the essence of both spiritual deliverance and earthly redemption.

“During Christmas,the world needs love, this is the spirit we have to imbibe to heal all that is broken in our world,” the statement read.
