Speaking when Ugwuanyi visited him and the Christian and Muslim communities in his country home in Mbu to celebrate Christmas and New Year, yesterday, Nnaji disclosed that it was because of the governor’s belief in God and his penchant for peace and unity that Christians and Muslims coexist peacefully and “gathered here to eat together.”

This is the third time he is visiting Mbu in one year. We have always celebrated the Christmas and New Year with you. My people in Ugwualama Mbu are grateful for the good things you have done for us.”
