Yuletide: Lagos Gov Akinwunmi Ambode Urges Nigerians To Emulate Jesus Christ
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has urged citizens to emulate Jesus Christ so that Nigeria would be a better place with no hate and violence.
He stated said this at the 2018 Lagos Christmas Carol Service themed ‘The light of the world’.
Wife of the Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode, in her welcome address, imagined what the world would be if everyone had the qualities of Jesus Christ.
According to her, it would have been a society where love reigns supreme with joy, peace and harmony. “Of course, we cannot be Jesus Christ; but we can imbibe his teachings and strive hard to emulate his qualities of humility, love for all, fairness, selflessness and consideration for fellow humans, among others.”
The governor, in his goodwill message, corroborated his wife that the world would be a better place, if the citizens emulate Jesus, adding that the carol is one of the many ways to appreciate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for mankind.
“If God had not given us a chance of redemption through Christ; if he had insisted on vengeful action based on the sinfulness of the world, what will be the story of mankind?” he wondered.
