The Chairman, Igando-Ikotun Local Council Development Area, Hon Morenike Adesina Williams has urged the people of her community to see Christmas as an opportunity to rekindle acts of love and kindness to one another.
She made this known through a Christmas message signed by her Chief Press Secretary, Comrade Eniola Badmos Seyi on Tuesday, December 24.
According to the statement, she said the season symbolises love, care and compassion for persons, especially the weak, vulnerable and less-privileged.
Williams added that her message to everyone at this period is to put a smile on the face of persons who may not necessarily be able to pay them back.
“This Christmas means so much more than just merriment. It is an avenue to extend love to the less-privileged, who are disadvantaged in several ways.
“Let us put smiles on the faces of the weak and vulnerable. This is the real essence of Christmas,” she said.
The council boss explained that the last twelve months brought about different challenging situations which combined to make residents stronger, expressing optimism that Igando-Ikotun would get even better in the New Year.
“Our hope is based on our unshaken faith in the grace of God, the solid foundation which we have laid in terms of infrastructure development and renewal, as well as the policies and programmes which we have put in place to positively impact on the social and economic well-being of our people,” she said.
She further urged residents to continue in their support of her administration, assuring them that the New Year would witness greater, all-round development across the community.
