Mimiko Charges Christians on Ideals of ChristmasFeatured, Latest News, News Wednesday, December 25th, 2013
Ondo State governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko has enjoined Christians in the state to remain committed to the ideals of Christmas as such is the only way to accord proper meaning to the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
He also enjoined them to see the celebration of Christmas as an oppurtunity to share and exhibit love for one another, even as he implored the people to sacrifice more “so that our nation can become the place of comfort we desire”.
Mimiko advised that the earlier Christians begin to recommit themselves to the ideals of Christmas the better. He implored the citizens to look to the new year with optimism, submitting that with love and total dedication by Nigerians, ” we will overcome our challenges”
“As we celebrate this Christmas, let us celebrate with moderation.
“We must, at all times, remember the whole essence of the birth of Jesus Christ who, despite the fact that He is
the son of God chose to be born in a dirty manger. It is this classical case of humility and self denial which hallmarked the entire life of Christ that we should emulate today and always as we celebrate.” He urged.
