…urges Bayelsans to exhibit love, make sacrifices
“My message today is on sacrifice and love. I like to say that, as Bayelsans, if we truly call ourselves christians, then we must have a forgiven spirit, and we must sacrifice our personal interest for the overall interest of Bayelsa State.
As a federating unit, if all of us do that in our various states, then, Nigeria will be a better place for all of us. My dear citizens of Bayelsa, let us begin to make sacrifices for ourselves and our state, and love one another, and it is through that, Bayelsa will prosper.”
