Let Love Lead – Mimiko at Christmas

As Christians around the world celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ, immediate past Governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, has called on Nigerian Christians to live a life marked by love.

Mimiko, in a statement by John Paul Akinduro, his Special Assistant on Media and Digital Communications, said the scriptures command that christians do everything in love as they relate with others.

According to him, “As we merry this season, we must remember that a lot of families and individuals are spending this holiday without food, clothing and shelter – our duty as Christians is to show them love and kindness.

“We must also remember that some are in captive while others are sick. So, as we come together with our loved ones, in safety and security, let’s think of those who cannot do the same at the moment”

Mimiko and his wife, Olukemi, wished all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous new year.
