IKA BREAKING NEWS
IKA National President and Chairman Board of Directors Mr. Emmanuel Mefom extends seasons greetings.My dear Ika brothers and sister, the season of festivity has come upon us again. The stores and neighborhoods decorated with Christmas light , ornaments and jingle bells are ringing. Reflecting back on my younger years, this is the season of khaki and white and bad hair cut and I know some of you can testify to that.
The sweet breeze of harmattan blowing and ashy looking men, women, boys and girls walking around with broad smiles on their faces. As a kid it appears we wait eternity for this season.It is just like yesterday. Oh how sweet it was then, the knockouts, concerts, Ekpo and of course excessive rice consumption. Life was good. Christmas we’re told is the celebration of the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. My favorite scripture which is John 3:16 says “For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son” What a price, what a gift.
As we exchange gift during this holiday, let’s remember to give from the heart to those who are less privileged and reach out to families that lost their loved ones. The gift should be secondary because it is better to give than to receive. Please do not place emphasis on the price rather the thought because God loves a cheerful giver. Remember, it is about baby Jesus Christ who paid it all As this is the season of giving, do not forget IKA NATIONAL as we are 503 C and all your gifts are tax deductible.Ali onye wu nduan.I wish you a safe holiday and a prosperous new year as we march to Washington DC 2014.MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
