In his annual Christmas message, Malam Bello enjoined them to use the occasion of Christmas to pray for the quick end of the pandemic, he charged them to comply with all the guidelines on COVID-19 prevention as announced by the relevant health authorities.
 
   He urged them not to be carried away by the euphoria of the festivities and let their guard down but to celebrate safely by obeying all the established health protocols.

Bello also enjoined them to use the occasion of Christmas to reflect upon, and rededicate themselves to the virtues of love and peace as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
 
The Minister reflected that the FCT was founded on the principles of love for country, respect for fellow citizens and peaceful co-existence in a united Nigeria.
 
 He therefore urged all residents of the FCT, to continue to imbibe these virtues as embodied by the season of Christmas.
