Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has Felicitated with Christians as they celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Francis Agbo, Governor Dickson urged Nigerians to live a Christ-like life which he noted was a life of sacrifice, selfless service, love and forgiveness.
He called on Nigerians and particularly Bayelsans to use the Christmas celebration to intensify prayers for the peace and security of the state and the nation in general. The Governor also called on political leaders to emulate Jesus Christ who used his Ministry for the good of all, by using their offices to advance the cause of the ordinary people.
He said: “Service to man is service to God; he that serves man well, serves God well. Jesus Christ used his earthly ministry for the common good of humanity and above all, died for our sins. Our faith would have been in vain if Jesus had not sacrificed himself for us all.
I therefore use this Christmas celebration to once again call on political actors and privileged Nigerians to always work for the good of the people and do things that would foster unity in the country”
He said 2018 was critical to finishing strong on the mandate of the Restoration Government and called on Bayelsans to as usual, support and collaborate with his government to keep delivering the dividends of democracy to the people.
