THE Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on the commemoration of this year’s Boxing Day, has charged Nigerians to show love, exchange gifts and give supports to their friends, loved ones, companions, and those who are in need.
In his words, the Edo State governor said: “I extend warm greetings and best wishes to everyone as we celebrate this year’s Boxing Day.”
He also urged that: “As we proceed with the festivities, I enjoin all to reflect on the virtues of giving and extending a hand of love and support to neighbours, friends and acquaintances.
“This celebration is a good opportunity to exchange gifts with loved ones, as well as others in need: those living in orphanages, in prisons, hospitals, and in the Internally Displaced Persons’ camps in the State.”
“I pray that this celebration will continue to foster love and unity among us all regardless of our cultural differences, creed, faith or social class.
“May the spirit of the celebration and brotherly kindness remain with us even after this season.”
