In an earlier End of Year Message, the Majority Leader had admonished that, “25th December symbolizes the entry of Christ Jesus born to reconcile God with Mankind May this watershed event instil in us sacrifice, selflessness, humility and rededication, especially in these turbulent times, to lead us on to reposition the country”.
Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, in sharing his widow’s mite with the party faithfuls, further stated that, ‘ admittedly, when times are hard for me, I assume it is harder for you. This is the reason why I deem this gesture most appropriate to ensure we celebrate the Christmas together’.
