The House Member representing Yagba Federal Constituency Hon. Leke Abejide greets and felicitates with constituents as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In his statement Hon. Leke joined Christian compatriots in giving thanks to God Almighty for the divine gift of Jesus Christ the Messiah whose earthly incarnation we commemorate today.
“As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ who the Prophet Isaiah heralded as the Prince of Peace and Wonderful Counselor, I believe it is very appropriate that we all Christians and non-Christians alike reflect more deeply on the virtues and ideals which the Saviour espoused during his mission here on earth”.
There can be no doubt that the greater internalization of the virtues of love for our fellow men, tolerance, Godliness, honesty, fairness to others, selflessness, peaceful co-existence and the inculcation of these will help us to overcome.
Peace and love for others, especially, were a constant refrain in the teachings and admonitions of God to mankind. Therefore, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, he urged the people of Yagba to offer special prayers of divine peace in our communities and country.
In this season of goodwill, he enjoined the people to dedicate their stewardship in doing all within our power to show love to the needy, let us donate generously to people. Let this year’s celebration of Christ rekindle, strengthen and reaffirm our faith in our ability to overcome all challenges with God on our side.
Hon. Leke appreciated everyone for their prayers and support during his trying time of the unfortunate loss of one of his daughters. Expressing that this changes most of his plans for this period but with God on his sides program for the Widows across the Federal Constituency will take place before the end of the year. Empowerment program initially planned for December may come after the payment of WAEC FEES in January 2021 he said.
Hon. Leke Abejide prayed that the spirit of Christmas brings peace, hope, warmth and God’s love surround the people this season and always.
