It is again, that special period of the year for Christians all over the world and we have been very fortunate to come through to this very special day of Christ’s birth which often not only marks the birth of the Messiah but also signals to us that the year is a stone throw away from its end.
Christmas is a special time to share with our families and friends, but it is also a time for all of us to reflect on the events of the passing year, count our blessings and make corrections where necessary. It is a time for us to look after our own community, reach out to the less privileged, visit a neighbour who might be alone during the holidays, pray and celebrate with our community’s unsung heroes, who quietly go about their business of keeping us safe and secure, etc.
I am always impressed by the generosity of IMOLITES towards others, and this year has once again been no exception. The scale and variety of the charitable and voluntary work in IMO STATE is truly amazing, and demonstrates the very special character of the people of this State.
While we value the excellent work of Imolites, we must also endeavor to invest more in our young generation and to help those who have lost their way to get back on track.
As we approach 2018, let us enjoy the spirit of the Christmas season and remember that respect and kindness to others will last all year round.
Our hope and prayer for the New Year is that 2018 will be even more successful as we work together with Government, businesses and of course the residents of the Imo State to ensure that we all continue to contribute to the growth of our state and Nigeria at large.
We wish each and every one of you a joyous, safe, merry and relaxing Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year with every best wish for a fulfilling 2017.
Madumere and Family
