The Senator noted also that Jesus Christ made love for one another the epicentre of his message to humanity”.
Senator Uba lamented that “love has departed from many Nigerian communities. Conflicts have replaced peaceful coexistence, tolerance and being our brothers and sisters keepers. May this Christmas set the stage for the building of lasting peace in our communities,” he prayed.

He said “President Muhammadu Buhari has left no one in doubt as to his determination to stabilize the economy and infuse integrity, accountability and transparency into governance.
“The 2020 budget, if vigorously pursued, will bring the much-needed relief to the Nigerian poor. Our President is pained by the difficult and challenging circumstances of the less privileged in our society and has vowed to lift millions of them out of poverty,” he said.
He restated his commitment to the growth and development of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone noting that “our modest efforts are already bearing fruits.
