The Former Chairman, Senate Committee on information Distinguished Sen. Ayogu Eze, has called on Nigerians to imbibe the attitude of love, which he described as the core essence and message of the Yultide.
Chief Eze stated this in an interview with Newsmen at his home town Umuida in Enugu Ezike Igboeze North LG on New year day during the 2020 edition of “Christmas With Widows”, an annual outreach to widows in the Enugu North Senatorial zone by his wife, Dr. Mrs. Nkechi Ayogu Eze.
At the event that featured the presentation of gifts and support to over 200 widows drawn from the senatorial zone, Chief Ayogu Eze stressed that it is important for Nigerians to be their brother’s keeper.
“No nation makes progress in the midst of divisiveness, injustice, and recriminations. We must recommit to loving one another even as Christ loved us and was born as man”
“We must not lose sight of the crux of the season, which is God’s love for mankind in sending his only begotten son for our salvation.
“Importantly, it is in our culture as Africans to be our brother’s keeper. We must never abandon the vulnerable and less privileged members of our society. My wife and I have, therefore, decided to continuously stick by these widows through this annual event, ensuring that they celebrate like others”.
Speaking, his wife, Dr. Mrs. Nkechi Ayogu Eze assured the widows that they would never walk alone.
“Our presents might not be much, but it is from the depth of our hearts and you can always be rest assured that our family will continue to stand by you”, she emphasised.
Ayogu Eze’s family prayed for God’s unconditional blessings upon Ndi Enugu especially on the Governor, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi whom he described as a humble and peaceful Governor.
