Gov. Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State has urged Christian faithful to utilize the message of the birth of Jesus Christ by showing love, affection and good neighborliness.
“As you are all aware, the birth of Jesus Christ symbolises humility, love and peace even as Jesus personifies selflessness, charity and reconciliation among humanity.
“This season therefore, is a period for sober reflection and reaffirmation of moral values as exemplified by Jesus Christ,” Al-Makura said.
He asked Christians to be steadfast, modest and exhibit all sense of decorum as they celebrated Christmas.
” You should avoid extravagance and ostentation but be guided by the fear of God in all your endeavor at all times,” he added.
Al-Makura said government had taken adequate measures to ensure the security of lives and property on a sustainable basis
