|The Honourable Commissioner for Health, Cross River State, Dr Inyang Asibong in her Special Christmas message says Jesus Christ was a gift to show God’s exceeding love for mankind and for that all must reciprocate this gesture by imbibing the virtues and ideals of forgiveness, justice, fairness, understanding and meekness, all of which he exemplified.
She said with this, 2018 will end  with a renewed mind that will ultimately usher us into a new dawn of unending tranquillity, quality healthcare for all Cross Riverians and true brotherhood which Jesus Christ taught and lived for”.
The full text reads….
Christmas is a season that explains the depth of God’s love for mankind and exemplary sacrifice that we should emulate in our relationship with our neighbours irrespective of status and creed.
It is on this note that I, my family and staff of the Cross River State Ministry of Health wishes to use this season as another opportunity to wish all Christians all over the State Happy Christmas and New Year Celebration with the hope to increase our acts of kindness and touch the less privileged in our society.
“Therefore, this Christmas means so much more than just mere merriment. It is a veritable avenue to extend love to the less-privileged who are disadvantaged in several ways.
Let us put smiles on the faces of the weak and vulnerable as this is the real essence of Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in Advance.
Dr Inyang Asibong 
Commissioner for Health
Cross River State.
