Patience Jonathan To Light National Christmas Tree In Abuja. by fatdon2(m): 10:27am On Dec 18, 2012
The national Christmas tree was initiated by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) with the aim of showcasing Nigerian culture to the world.

A statement issued by the special adviser on media and publicity to the minister of state for FCT, Oluyinka Akintunde, disclosed that the Christmas tree, which is 20.9 metres high, is located at the Unity Fountain Park beside Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja and designed in the national colours of green and white.

Prominent Nigerians expected to grace the first of its kind ceremony, according to the statement, are, members of the National Assembly, wives of governors, members of the Federal Executive Council, chairmen of Area Councils in the FCT and their wives, heads of ministries, departments and agencies of government, heads of secretariats, departments and agencies of the FCT administration, diplomatic corps and the media, among others.

According to the statement, Minister of State for the FCT, Oloye Olajumoke Akinjide have described the event as part of efforts to showcase Nigeria and the FCT to the world as a centre of tourism.

It reads, "The Christmas time is traditionally recognised and celebrated as a season of peace, goodwill and hope across national boundaries. It also offers us a unique opportunity to reinforce this same message of love, unity, reconciliation and peaceful coexistence.

"It is consequently our anticipation that an annual lighting of the Nigerian National Christmas tree will play a similar unifying role for our people," Akinjide added.

People are dying left right and centre and this is all our first can be involved. Can't she go on a pothole fixing spree and fix some 100 potholes along with the weedtree lighting exercise as a way of affecting the masses positively? or fix 100 traffic sign post?

If it were a Muslim-inspired monument, we would have been inundated with delirious shouts of "islamization of Nigeria".
