“As we reflect on the significance of Christmas, may I use the opportunity to appreciate your individual and collective contributions in driving the ship of this noble Scheme towards achieving its objectives which has significantly added value in all facets of our national development.
“Accordingly, I charge you to rededicate yourselves to the service of our dear country even as you prioritize your personal security in this season.
“As many that may travel during this festive period, specifically with permission on the side of Corps Members, I wish you journey mercies and divine protection to and fro your various destinations. Remember, you must avoid the night journey.
“Together, with other patriotic Nigerians, we shall continue to build a strong, united and prosperous nation.
“I heartily wish all Staff and Corps Members MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD’S BOUNTIFUL PROTECTION
