Christmas 2018: Governor Okowa Preaches Reconciliation, Love, Charity

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 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.”
