Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State has expressed
gratitude to the people of the state for their support, as
he rejoices with them on Christmas.
He said Christmas is “a season of peace, love, gratitude
and hope.”
Gov Orji in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary,
Mr. Charles Ajunwa, said “We are grateful for the divine
assignment that God gave to us about seven and half
years ago to liberate Abia and make it one of the
progressive states in our nation. We are grateful for
your support over the years and we thank God that we
have another Christmas to celebrate in an atmosphere
of peace and prosperity.”
“Christmas provides that opportunity to relax and
reflect on the values taught by our Lord Jesus Christ,
which every of his creature is admonished to imbibe.
“We know that one of such is to defend the poor, which
has been at the centre of our work in the last seven and
half years. Christmas is a chance to celebrate the birth
of Christ and live out what He taught us– to love our
neighbours as we would ourselves; to feed the hungry
and look after the sick; to be our brother’s keeper and
our sister’s keeper.
“As a government, we have made these values a centre
point of our administration. As a country, this
Christmas yet offers us the opportunity to come
together to show love to ourselves, care for one
another and pray for the unity and peace of our
country.”
Orji said Nigerians everywhere should take the
advantage of the Christmas celebration to commit
Nigeria’s elections in 2015 into the hands of God who is
the only one that can guide without misleading anyone.
“Nigerians must show love for our country as we look
forward to the 2015 elections by asking God to guide
us. God hears prayers always and there is no better
time than now to cry to him and ask for guidance for
the forthcoming elections.
“As we look to the New Year, let’s pledge ourselves to
living out those values by reaching out and lifting up
those in our communities who need us for a raise.
Urging Nigerians to pray for the success of the 2015
elections, Orji reminded the citizens to always
remember Nigerian troops facing war in the North-east.
“Their families need our prayers and support at this
time, when we all have someone to hold tight while they
as families of our soldiers in a battle to save our
country, are lonely without their loved ones present with
them at this time.”
