The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Bende House of Representatives and Igbere-born business man, Chima Anyaso, has urged Nigerians to embrace uprightness in a bid to build an egalitarian society.
The call was contained in his New Year message at an inter-denominational praise and worship church service to mark the end of 2018 and usher in the year 2019.
Anyaso also highlighted the importance of giving hope to the poor and giving meaning to the life of those who need help.
“Putting God first in all endeavours is the only guarantee of success and we pray that God will grant us all victory, on every side, in this year 2019,’’ he prayed.
