Archbishop Ibezim urged the wealthy people in the society to extend hands of fellowship  to the deprived and challenged people in the society  as they celebrate Christmas. 

He said”We want to remind people that as much as  we are  celebrating  Christmas, rejoicing  with  our  families, I want to encourage  you to remember  those  that are in  the prison, the motherless  babies  homes, beggars in the street , try to do something  outside  the box.
