He regretted that some Christians perpetrated evil during Christmas instead of exhibiting the virtues.

“We are supposed to do things that should glorify God on the occasion of Christ’s birth.

“People indulge in fornication, drunkenness, consumption of illicit drugs, among other bad behaviours, instead of doing things that glorify God,” he said.

Osakede called on Nigerians, especially leaders, to rise up against vices in private and public sectors.
