"You need to have Jesus Christ before obtaining prosperity". "Jesus came to reveal the face of God to all those who seek him".

"I pray that the Christmas spirit will reinvigorate our sense of patriotism in our political, economic and social life, because we as Nigerians can only win if we win together".

Special mass services were held at various churches in the Borno capital.
