Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has congratulated the Christians across the state and beyond on the celebration of Christmas festival.

He made the remark in a Christmas message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Olabode Olatunde, on Friday.

Akeredolu told the people to reflect on the reason for the season by extending love to the less privileged and their neighbours.

The statement read, “Undoubtedly, this season resonates deep feeling of excitement and celebration. It is a celebration that has become a ritual among us. The birth of Jesus Christ preaches love, happiness, and salvation for the people. We must be deliberate, this season, to spread love around.

“Notwithstanding this great feeling of joy, I call on our people to celebrate moderately. Judging from the present mood and realities, we must balance our celebration with the realities that will confront us in the new year.

“As we celebrate, let us also be vigilant in our environment. Our security agencies, supported by Amotekun, are everywhere to ensure that we have a peaceful celebration in the state.

“Let me on behalf of my adorable Betty, my family, myself and the government of Ondo State congratulate you on this joyous occasion. I pray that we will live to celebrate many more Christmas.

“I must not fail to also charge you to observe all Covid-19 protocols as this deadly virus is very much around. Wear your face mask, use hand sanitisers and maintain distance while in public places. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance. “
