Taraba State Governor, Arc Darius Dickson Ishaku has felicitated with all Christians in the State on the celebration of Christmas.
Gov Ishaku said Christmas is a key part and reminder of God’s grand salvation plan for mankind.
A statement by his Special Adviser, Bala Dan Abu, the governor said the coming of Jesus Christ into the world through a unique but humble birth process remains the greatest symbol of identity, hope and unity among Christians all over the world.
He said Christmas which is the anniversary of that great act of God’s love for humanity deserves to be celebrated.
He, however, urged Christians not to forget the lesson behind the birth of Jesus and the circumstances of that unique birth, all of which point to God’s love for mankind.
He reminded them to also endeavour to demonstrate the lesson and spirit behind Christmas among themselves and also in their relationship with people of other religions and faiths.
