Obaseki Tasks Nigerians On Love At Christmas Carol Concert



Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, has called on Nigerians to uphold virtues of peace, share good tidings and express love among themselves during the Christmas celebration.
The governor said this yesterday at the maiden edition of the Governor’s Carol Concert held at Government House, in Benin City.
Obaseki said the concert would be held annually in the life of his administration, adding that there was so much to be thankful to God for in 2017 and expressed optimism that 2018 would be a fruitful year.
Present at the concert were the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Rev. Felix Omobude, the Edo State Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bishop Oyonnude Kure; Vice Chancellor, University of Benin, (UNIBEN), Prof. Friday Orumwense and other government functionaries.
Meanwhile, wife of the state governor, Mrs Betsy Obaseki, has organised a Christmas party for less-privileged children in the state.
Mrs Obaseki said the society can only be a better place when people learn to show love to one another, especially to the less-privileged.
The First Lady said she was inspired to organise the party because she plans to bring the less- privileged children to the same social pedestal with their privileged counterparts.
She said, though this is coming during the Christmas period, showing love and kindness especially, to the less privileged should not be restricted to a particular season of the year.
The kids, numbering over 350, were randomly selected from schools in three local government areas within Benin City metropolis.
The party featured dance competition, gift presentation and many more.
Also present at the event were wives of the Deputy Governor, Maryam Shuaibu and other top government functionaries.
