In his Christmas message to the people of the state, the Speaker pointed out that as Christians, the celebration of the birth of Christ should be a moment when Christians are expected to follow the foot-steps of the master Jesus Christ, by ensuring that they maintain unity and love in their domains.

He stated that the birth of Christ brought to mankind the lesson of simplicity and humility of Jesus, whom he said chose to identify with a humble beginning despite his towering status, adding that such was an un-denying virtue which Christians, desirous of partaking in God?s kingdom must endeavor to emulate so as to remain better representatives of Christ in the world.

The Speaker, further called on the well-to-do individuals, in the spirit of the season to remember the poor, the needy and the less-privileged in their neighborhood as they celebrate, stressing that caring for the poor was one of the major attributes of Christ during his sojourn on earth.

Rt. Hon. Uwajumogu, who advised people of the state to ensure they coordinate their activities this season with utmost restraints, also charged them to remain law-abiding, while urging relevant security agencies in the state to step up with the task of ensuring adequate protection of lives and property this yuletide.

While extending his good wishes to the people of Okigwe senatorial zone of the state, the Imo Speaker, also thanked them for their unwavering support, prayers and cooperation so far, adding that such courageous support has spurred him into aspiring to represent them at the senate with a mandate to restoring all that the zone had lost in the years past.
