Ignatius Kaigama, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, says Nigeria is coming to its season of greater glory of peace and victory.

He gave the assurance during the NTA and VON annual service of Nine Lessons and Christmas Carol, held at the Nigerian Christian Centre on Sunday in Abuja.

The service had the theme ‘Peace, Be Still’, based on Mark 4:35-41.

According to him, the theme was apt, as Nigeria and the rest of the world confront security, social and economic challenges amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As Christians, the desired calmness is needed for our work to be manifested,” he said.

He also mentioned that the service’s theme carried three lessons.

“There will be storms, but afterward, peace follows. Even in the midst of the storm, when fear was encompassing, words of courage and power should be declared with faith and candour,” stated Mr Kaigama.

The archbishop stressed that the power of faith would turn around any situation, no matter how hard it may be, urging Christians to speak to God to change the challenges in the country to “peace and prosperity.”

Mr Kaigama commended the invaluable contributions of the media to nation-building and urged media practitioners to focus on strengthening social discourse, national identity and rejuvenation.

The annual service celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the messiah, and the birth of Jesus are told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels.

The event was interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns and choir music.

Vice President Yemi Osibanjo was among the dignitaries in attendance.
