Christmas: "Extend Love, Kindness To All", MMAF BoT Chairman Urges Christians

The Board of Trustee Chairman of the awards winning NGO, Majalisan Macido Andaha Foundation (MMAF), Alh. Adamu Tanko Umar has urged Christians to see the period of Christmas as an opportunity to "rekindle acts of love and kindness to one another especially to the vulnerable in the society".
Tanko made the call in a Christmas goodwill message issued by his media aide, Nathaniel Maaji and made available to n-Mirror some few minutes ago. 

According to him, the season symbolizes love, care and compassion for persons, especially the weak, vulnerable and less-privileged and urged everyone at this period to put a smile on the faces of people who may not necessarily be able to pay them back.

"Christmas is a season that explains the depth of God's love for mankind and exemplary sacrifice that we should emulate in our relationship with our neighbours irrespective of status and creed. This season is another opportunity to increase our acts of kindness and touch the less privileged in our society.

"Therefore, this Christmas means so much more than just mere merriment. It is a veritable avenue to extend love to the less-privileged who are disadvantaged in several ways. In this special season therefore, I urge you all to spread love and be our brother's keeper. Let us reach out to those who struggle to provide for their families. Let us put smiles on the faces of the weak and vulnerable. This is the real essence of Christmas," the message reads. 

The message notes that the last twelve months of the year brought about different challenging situations which combined to make every citizen stronger. Despite the numerous challenges confronting the country, he expressed optimism that Akwanga, Nasarawa State and Nigeria can only get better in 2018.
