Oshiomhole tasks Christians on goodwill





Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has urged the Christian faithful to follow in the footsteps of Christ by doing good to all men.

In his Christmas message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Peter Okhiria, Governor Oshiomhole said “the faithful should use the Christmas season to show love and do good to all men, even as the progenitor of the faith did over 2000 years ago.

“As we celebrate with family and friends, we should not forget the teaching of Jesus Christ in Matthew 22:39 to love our neighbours as ourselves.

“The message in this teaching should not be lost as it would heal our nation of her woes if imbibed by all.

“As a state, this is the unique opportunity for us to sober-reflect on our journey thus far. It is an opportunity for us to ask at the individual level the salient question: ‘what impact have I made towards the growth of our state.’

“As we celebrate, we should not forget the less-priviledged in the society by extending a hand of love to them.

“I salute the Christian community in the state for their continued peaceful co-existence with people of other faith and for their continued prayers and support.

“I wish all faithful a Merry Christmas.”
