Governor Abiodun Greets Nigerians At Christmas

Governor Dapo Abiodun on Tuesday congratulated  the entire Christian faithful in the State and the Country at large on the occasion of this year's Christmas celebration, marking the birth of Jesus Christ.

Abiodun said that  the birth of Christ shows God’s love for mankind as well as rekindles hope that the Creator wishes that his people live a full and happy life on earth and hereafter if they follow the example of Jesus Christ.

The Governor added that: "the season is one of hope reborn just like hope and confidence is born anew in our dear State with the ascension to power of a Government that is preaching inclusiveness, renewal and collective and individual prosperity.

“Christ is the reason for the Yuletide. Christmas is here and it is one of the most joyous times of the year. It is filled with festivities, love and sharing. I therefore thank God Almighty for seeing us through all the odds and gains of the year.

Governor Abiodun notes that he appreciates “the love, solidarity and peace with which citizens and residents of the State have continued to live together. I cherish the abiding faith and prayers of our brothers and sisters across religious lines. 

"I value our investors and the business community for trusting us as the Nation’s Number One Investment Destination and indeed in the West Africa sub-region. I commend the political community for their patriotism and continuous engagement aimed at Building Our Future Together.
“My prayer for all - the citizens, workers in public and private sectors, market men and women, traders, artisans, students and even those still seeking gainful employment - is that we all have a joyful celebration and that our endeavours in the New Year be more fulfilling in all our pursuits for a better tomorrow.
 “Indeed honoured and grateful to hold your mandate. I wish you all a very merry, safe and joyous Christmas and peaceful and prosperous New Year.”
Continuing, the Governor said: "this year’s celebration is significant and special because it was in this year's elections that the people of all faiths saw the hand of God in the most contentious Governorship election ever held in the State. God not only showed his awesomeness but all powers that rose against His choice fell like a pack of cards at the Tribunal, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court."

According to him, the long prayers and supplication for a good leader was answered with the election and judicial pronouncements.
In a release by his Chief Press Secretary; Kunle Somorin, and made available to The Daily Crucible, Abiodun encouraged all Nigerians to use the period of celebration to show love to one another irrespective of their religious beliefs and to reflect on the love of God which is always so abundant and overflowing.
Acknowledging that the economic situation in the country is not too rosy at the moment, Prince Abiodun enjoins the Christian community and all Nigerians to celebrate with joy as much as possible, in the understanding that the future of the country would be better.
