The Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, OMPAN, Imo State chapter, has enjoined Christians to use the season to show love to one another.
A statement by the Association signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr. ThankGod Emeh, reads:
“The Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, OMPAN, Imo State Chapter in the spirit of the season wishes all Christian faithfuls across the country and the state in particular a Merry Christmas celebration.
“The Association enjoins Christians, traders and motorists and general public to remember the reason for the season and not use the yuletide to hike prices of goods, perpetrate crime, and cause hardship to people pointing out that the season is a season to show love to one another in society.
“Imo OMPAN states that Christmas celebration calls for Sober Reflection on our Relationship with Jesus and as well remember the needy, the sick, the less privilege in society.
“We pray God Almighty to grant Christians across the world journey mercies to their destinations and a prosperous new year. .
