Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Sunday charged Nigerians to eschew bitterness and hatred but imbibe the spirit of true love and sacrifice  which the life and times of Jesus Christ epitomized.

The governor gave the charge in his  congratulatory message to Christians made available to newsmen in Ibadan by  his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka.

He stressed that in the spirit of the Christmas celebrations, there is the need for Nigerians ” to spare a thought for their less-privileged and vulnerable compatriots by donating gifts in cash and kind for them to also have a feel of the Christmas celebration.”

“I would like to congratulate our Christian brothers and sisters on the Christmas celebration. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I want to enjoin us all to imbibe the spirit of true love and sacrifice for one another. This is the cardinal essence of this season. Let us spare a thought for our less-privileged and vulnerable neighbours by donating gifts in cash and kind for them to also have a feel of the Christmas celebration.” he said

Governor Ajimobi then urged the “Christians to use the opportunity of the season to pray for the country’s economic turnaround and for leaders at all levels to be guided in their drive to surmount the challenges assailing the country.”
“We should eschew bitterness and hatred. Let us pray for the leadership of our great country as we are entering into the New Year 2018. As a nation, we might not be where we want to be yet, but we should be thankful to God that we are not where we used to be.”
Governor Ajimobi however assured of his administration’s committment towards moving Oyo state forward, saying, “as a government, here in Oyo State, we are committed to ensuring that our state continues to set the pace in the areas of education, agriculture, infrastructure and service delivery.  We are on that path to greatness and we shall not deviate. I wish you all a Merry Christmas.”
