As Christians worldwide celebrate the birth of Christ, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ondo state and the Chief executive officer of Klick Konnect Network, Chief Dr. Alex Ajipe has congratulated the people of Ondo state and Nigerians on the joy of the season.

In his Christmas message made available to newsmen in Akure the state capital by his media Aide Solomon Adewoye, Ajipe urged Christians to reflect on the essence for which Christ came to save mankind.

He also identified the virtues epitomised by Jesus Christ as love, care, selflessness and compassion for people, especially the weak, the vulnerable and the underprivileged.

 He said, “Christmas is a season that explains the depth of God’s love for mankind and exemplary sacrifice that we should emulate in our relationship with our neighbours, irrespective of status and creed.
