In his statement, Odebiyi said “All of us should embrace the virtues and teachings of Christ Jesus”.
“I join our fellow Christians around the world to rejoice in the birth of our Saviour”.
“And as we retell the story of the birth of Christ on that Holy Night, we should also remember His eternal message of boundless love, compassion and hope.”
While thanking Ogun people for their loyalty and support for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Odebiyi said “Let’s show love to our neighbours and be guided by the gospel of Christ in our thoughts and conducts”.
