Lagos –   The Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Adm. Ibok-Ete Ibas, on Friday night appealed to Nigerians to shun hatred and embrace love which Christmas signifies.

The CNS made the appeal at the Nigerian Navy Officers’ Wives Association (NOWA) Christmas carol in Lagos.

The event, which was held at the Naval Dockyard on Victoria Island, was attended by retired and serving naval officers and their families and friends.

The Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) Beecroft Commander, Maurice Eno and Rear Adm. Fergusson Bobai attended the event which featured choir ministration from different churches.

The CNS, who was the special guest at the event, read the eighth of the nine lessons of the carol.
