Managing Director and CEO of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Bashorun Askia Ogieh has called on the staff of the commission and Deltans to spread the joy and love of Christmas as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
In his Christmas message, he said, “An awesome, wonderful God
“Tough, challenging, crippling, deadly. All these and more capture the uncertainties packed into the outgoing year.
“We lost our loved ones but in all, we should remain grateful because we have what to live on at the end
“The year unleashed what the world now calls Covid-19 Pandemic, a sickness still without cure. For us in Nigeria, the lockdown that came with the pandemic ultimately plunged our economy into what the International Monetary Fund (IMF) called severe recession.
In all these, however, the Most High God has preserved and upheld us and our loved ones.
“For our staff and critical stakeholders, we have reason to celebrate the season, for He has kept us faithfully to witness again, the jingles of the bells that announced His Coming for our salvation.
“Let us spread round, the warmth and love of the season to our loved ones, through meekness, gratitude and Thanksgiving.
“As you enjoy the festivities, please accept my heartfelt best wishes to you all and your families for a safe and enjoyable Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
