The lawmaker representing Somolu Constituency 1, at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Rotimi Olowo, has urged Christians to imbibe the values and virtues of the Lord Jesus Christ, saying that it would help to strengthen unity among people for progress.
Olowo, in his Christmas Message, stated that the day should not be limited to funfair but also a day to show love and care to the less privileged in the society because of what Jesus Christ stands for in his period.
The lawmaker stressed that religious should be used to express love among populace and deepen friendship among various beliefs, adding that “this can be achieved through the spirit of oneness and obedience to the commandments of God”.
“Today, as Christians across the country and world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we should use the day to show love to people around us by extending hands to them and the less privileged.
The birth of Jesus Christ is significant in the life of Christians and today symbolizes it. Jesus Christ represents peace, love and togetherness and we must make these to reflect in the way and manner we relate with ourselves as citizens of this nation”, said Olowo
He, however, assured the people of Somolu of his continuous empowerment of the people, saying that he would continue to hold on to the ideals of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the leadership.
Olowo added ” I can assure lagosians and my people in Somolu in particular that our party, APC, will continue to deliver on its promises for their betterment”.
