The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa has appealed for unity against our common enemies in his Christmas and New Year message.
The CDS message was contained in a statement signed by Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, Acting Director, Defence Information (DI), made available to Naijanewshub on Sunday.
General Musa said, “As we join the global celebration of Christmas and New Year, I express sincere gratitude to the Armed Forces of Nigeria ( AFN) and Nigerians for unwavering commitment.
“May the festive spirit bind us as one, and the warmth of shared destiny resonate beyond this season.
“My fervent prayer is that, as we revel, we align with Christ’s teachings of peace, love, and harmony. Acknowledging the sacrifices of our uniformed heroes defending our nation, let us face challenges with unity and courage. Your bravery will not go unnoticed, and we commit to continuous support.”
The CDS also seized the moment to call on all Nigerians to “unite against common enemies” and to “support” our motivated AFN, steadfast in defending our nation’s integrity.
He said, “As we bid farewell to the year, look to the New Year with renewed hope. Stay vigilant and resolute in protecting our nation. With the commitment of all Nigerians, we will secure our dear nation.
“Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
