This Christmas season once again presents us with the opportunity to reflect on the realities of the humble background of a divine birth that would have been a global extravaganza if God was a show-off, or operates by the laws of men.
But God is God and not man and His ways are past finding out, so Jesus entered the world quietly then proceeded to revolutionalise it.
That immaculate birth of a young child thousands of years ago in Bethlehem, Judea brought the message of hope, compassion, salvation, reconciliation, forgiveness and peace with God and among men which Jesus Christ embodies and conveys. It continues to ring out on the earth generation after generation and will do so till the end of time.
Indeed, we thank God for the trials we have faced and the triumphs we are enjoying. Our resilience and steadfastness as a State in the face of this needless crisis is born of the grace of God which has given us leaders who understand the times and know what Kogi State should do.
