Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has felicitated with Christians on the occasion of the Christmas celebrations.

This is contained in a statement issued in Akure by Mr. Richard Olatunde, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.

Akeredolu charged people of the state to reflect the reason for the season by extending love to the less privileged and to their neighbours.

“Undoubtedly, this season resonates deep feelings 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.

“I must not fail to also charge you to observe all COVID-19 safety protocols as this deadly virus is very much around.

“Wear your facemask, use hand sanitiser and maintain social distancing while in public places,’’ Olatunde quoted Akeredolu as having said.
