Obi, Obaseki, preach hope, love during Christmas


Christmas, a day set aside by Christian faithful worldwide to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, is some hours away. Some notable personalities in the country have sent their Christmas messages to the people.

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in his Christmas message encouraged Nigerians to remain hopeful for a better nation. He also encouraged the people to look at the true meaning of the festive period rather than dwell on just the glamour and excitement of the period.

Obi, who is a devout Catholic said, “We, as humans should therefore, endeavour to make sacrifices, even when it is painful, for the good of others and for our society.”

The former Governor of Anambra State also spoke on the need for people to spread love to those who are in need during this period. In addition, he said that the hallmark of the Christmas celebration is helping the poor.

Speaking on the change of leadership in 2023, Obi noted that next year is very important for the people to make a significant change in the country. He also wished Nigerians a productive and prosperous new year.


Similarly, the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, advised fellow Christians to spread love during this festive season. He added that people should show care and reflect on the life of Jesus Christ and His teachings on love and sacrifice during this period.

In a statement, Obaseki said, “I celebrate with all Edo people, at home and in the diaspora as well as residents, as we mark  this beautiful Christmas season.

“Christmas presents an auspicious opportunity to show care and reflect on the life of Jesus Christ and His teachings on love and sacrifice. As we celebrate with our friends, relatives and acquaintances, I urge you to continue to spread the message of love, unity and peaceful co-existence.

“As a government, we are grateful to all our people for their unwavering faith in us and the continued show of support for our policies and initiatives in pursuit of a prosperous and progressive Edo State. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.”
