Obaseki urges love as Edo hosts students to carol of nine lessons

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Monday, led other top government functionaries to a special Christmas carol of nine lessons organised for students drawn from various schools across the state, with a charge for the students to show love to one another.

The carol in its maiden edition featured special performances from various musical, dance and choreography groups.

Other top government officials at the event include Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq.; Chief of Staff to the Governor, Osaigbovo Iyoha; Edo State Chief Judge, Joe Acha; Commissioner for Local Government, Monday Osaigbovo, and Chairman of the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Anthony Aziegbemi, among others.

The event, organized by Edo State Ministry of Education, was held at Imaguero College in Benin City.

Obaseki, who noted that the season was characterized by love and exchange of gifts, urged the children to show love towards one another as they celebrate Christmas.

In his opening remark, a student of Edo College, Osayomore Osayuki, thanked the Obaseki-led state government for the love it has continued to show Edo children.

Ven. Moses Onowhuke, in his teaching titled, ‘Make a Joyful Noise,’ said “Christmas is a time to share love and happiness, as well as add value to people’s lives. I urge leaders from across the country never to use their positions to oppress the people.”
