Former President of Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Dr Idris Omede (CIK) has felicitated with the people of Kogi state on the occasion of this year’s Christmas celebrations with a call on citizens to build a better society.

In a press statement issued on Thursday, the former Kogi state Commissioner of Health called for sober reflection on unmet expectations as a state and as individuals.

He noted that despite the challenges faced in the year 2020, the yuletide season calls for “a big thank you to our creator for bringing us thus far”.

“The 2020 Christmas is here with its expectations, needs and hope. At moments like this, the general level of activities both positively productive and negatively destructive are enhanced. These often are with or without concomitant economic advantage and gains from the system, institutions, organizations and individuals.

“That again is the wonder of moments of celebration and festivities, being always fresh, whenever it comes around. In all these, we say big thank you to our creator for bringing us thus far.

“It is equally time for sober reflection on our individual and state unmet expectations for development, good health and socioeconomic upliftment for a better and more enduring society where peace, security, respect and value for life reigns.

“As human beings, the onus lies heavily on us to do our best along set rules, regulations, laws and religious injunctions to make our communities, states, nation and by extension the world at large a better place to live in, in the face of disruptive technology, human adventure, human exploration, human innovation and human search for the unknown and now care and management of covid-19,” he said.

Omede, past President Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria (APBN), urged Kogi citizens to be part of those that create a better society where fairness, justice, good governance and leadership reigns.
