Akpowowo Preaches Love, Deeper Reflection On Teachings Of Christ’s Earthly Mission

Deputy Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Arthur Akpowowo, Sunday, said Christians and non-Christians alike should reflect more deeply on the virtues and ideals which the Messiah espoused during his earthly mission.

Akpowowo, in his Christmas goodwill message to Deltans and Nigerians, urged Nigerians to show love, tolerance and re-dedicate themselves to the service of humanity.

The goodwill message read in parts: “ I greet and felicitate with you all as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“I join all of our Christian compatriots in giving thanks to God Almighty for the divine gift of Jesus Christ the Messiah whose earthly incarnation we commemorate today.

“ As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ who the Prophet Isaiah heralded as the Prince of Peace and Wonderful Counselor, I believe it is very appropriate that we all, Christians and non-Christians alike, reflect more deeply on the virtues and ideals which the Messiah espoused during his earthly mission.

“To my mind, there can be no doubt that the greater internalization of the virtues of love for our fellowmen, tolerance, Godliness, honesty, fairness to others, selflessness, and peaceful co-existence with others, by all adult Nigerians, and the inculcation of the same in our youths, will definitely help our dear nation to overcome most of its present challenges.

“Peace and love for others, especially, were a constant refrain in the Messiah’s teachings and admonitions to mankind.
Therefore, as we celebrate his birth, I urge all Deltans and Nigerians to offer special prayers for a greater manifestation of divine peace in our country and the vanquishing of all demons of hatred, divisiveness and disunity in our midst.

“ To my constituents, the good people of Ethiope East, I cannot thank you enough for giving me your mandate. Without your support, I won’t be at the Delta State House of Assembly as your representative and I remain eternally grateful for the opportunity to serve you and our beloved state. I assure you that I will continue to use my good office to make laws that are human friendly and lobby for initiatives that will engender socio-economic growth and accelerated development.”

While thanking the people of Ethiope East and Deltans for their unalloyed support in 2023, the lawmaker urged them to reciprocate same in 2024 and prayed for a prosperous Yuletide season.
