The Administrator of Lokoja Local Government Area of Kogi State, Hon. Lawal Shiru, has felicitated with Christians on the occasion of this year’s Christmas, urging them to imbibe the spirit of peaceful co-existence and love towards one another, which, he said, the birth of Jesus Christ symbolizes.
In a goodwill message by his Media Assistant, Yabagi A. Umar  the local government boss said the country could only achieve the desired greatness in an atmosphere of peace and love.
Shiru described the pervading economic situation as a passing phase in the history of the country, adding that the people would soon heave a sight of relief with the various economic reforms and palliatives being introduced by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government.
 He called on the citizens to continue to support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in his untiring quest to wrest the country from its current economic challenges.
Shiru said; “For the workers and people of Lokoja local government  area, I want to use this opportunity to inform you that the administration under my leadership will continue to work hard to put smiles on your faces. You are in my thoughts always.
 “I urge you all to be modest in your celebrations. This is a period to spare a thought for your needy neighbours by giving freely from what God has blessed you with in the spirit of one for all, all for one.
“I enjoin motorists to drive carefully within and outside the state.
“Let me again express my appreciation to the people of this state for your high level of understanding and continued support for the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello.
“I urge you not to relent in your prayers which, I must admit, have been the motivation for our developmental strides,” he advised.
He assured residents of the council of adequate security before, during and after the season.
According to Shiru, the government has put in place adequate security measures to protect lives and property.
While thanking the people for their support and love, Shiru promised to continue with the projects and programmes “that have brought development to the area.”
He wished the people merry Christmas and prosperous New Year in advance.
