As Nigerian Christians join other faithful across the world to celebrate Christmas on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has called on Christians to reflect on the lessons of the birth of Jesus Christ as they go about celebrating the yuletide.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Charles Aniagwu in Asaba on Monday, Governor Okowa urged Christians to pray for peace, love and unity of the country and total reconciliation with God and man as they enter the new year.

The Governor noted that the best way to celebrate Christ was to show love and to give like Christ did. He reminded Christians and indeed all Nigerians that Christ showed the greatest love by giving himself and dying on the cross, and therefore urged Christians to also give especially to the less privileged in the society.

“I congratulate all Christians for witnessing yet another Christmas season. I advise all of you to use the festive period for sober reflections and total spiritual renewals and devotion towards living in peace and harmony with adherents of other religions.

“The birth of Jesus Christ being celebrated at Christmas, should be used to reconcile ourselves with God, promote peace, show love, and unity, including the display of the spirit of tolerance in the accomplishment of our vision of building a better State and country. I wish to admonish all Christians to emulate Jesus Christ in words and deeds, imbibe the core lessons of freedom, love, tolerance, sacrifice, generosity and peaceful co-existence, which Christ stood for.”

While congratulating Deltans and Nigerians on the Christmas and new year celebration, Governor Okowa urged them to deepen their love for Christ who gave his own life to redeem us from death.
