Rt. Hon. Friday Okpechi Gabriel (Member representing Obubra 1 State Constituency), has urged his constituents, especially Christians, to show steadfastness in emulating virtues of Jesus Christ including his peaceful deposition.

Okpechi, who is the House Committee Chairman on Public Accounts, gave the advice on Thursday in Obubra Local Government Area.

According to him, Cross Riverians in this period of Christmas should embrace peace and love one another, stressing that this is the reason for the season.

The Lawmaker said that Christmas connotes love, hope and salvation for mankind if Nigerians would live according to the standard of unconditional love shown by Christ.

“Christianity teaches that the birth of Jesus Christ resulted from the love of God for mankind by providing an opportunity for forgiveness of sins and salvation for all.

 

“Therefore, Christians and indeed other Nigerians should use this period to reflect on holiness, righteousness and personal sacrifice just like Christ himself did,” he said.

FG Okpechi said Nigerians, especially Christians, should celebrate the Christmas in the spirit of love and self-renewal in line with the essence of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Rt. Hon. Friday Okpechi Gabriel, who is the Chairman of the House Committee on Public Accounts, also urged the good people of Obubra 1 State Constituency to continue to pray to God to give himself and other leaders the wisdom to steer the ship of the Local Government Area.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year in advance!
