The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has called on all Christians to use the season of the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ to reach out and touch the lives of their neighbours.

In a Special Christmas Message issued in Awka by the Governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, James Eze, Obiano described Christmas as the season of love when Christians are expected to rise above all inhibitions to show love to their neighbours.

According to him, Christmas underscores the salvific role of Christ to mankind as well as his sacrificial love to towards building a more peaceful and harmonious world.

He observed that Nigeria was in a period of time when only sacrificial love can heal the deep-seated wounds and harrowing agonies that harangue the people on a daily basis.

His words: “Christmas celebration underscores the salvific role of Christ to mankind as well as his sacrificial love to towards centrality of sacrificial love to a more peaceful and harmonious world. So, in the birth of Jesus Christ, we Christians are reminded that love is the first condition for a better world.

“We need to be kind to one another, encourage one another and support one another.

“Nigeria is at a time when we must all come together to seal the cracks between us with love and the celebration of Christmas gives us a perfect opportunity to do just that.”

Obiano also used the opportunity of the Special Christmas Message to re-emphasis his appreciation of the renewal of his mandate for the second term in office by the people of Anambra State.

While thanking Anambra people and Igbos at home and in the Diaspora for their overwhelming support in the November 18 gubernatorial election in the state, he assured the people that he would do everything within his power to surpass their expectations and justify their faith in him in his second term in office.

The governor however dispelled speculations alleging that he was contemplating to run for President in 2019, dismissing them as a mere political stargazing which has no bearing on the facts on the ground.
