In the spirit of the season and part of activities to make Christmas meaningful for the displaced persons in the dtate, Edo State Government on Saturday, hosted members of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the International Christian Centre, in Benin, Edo State, to a Christmas party where Governor Godwin Obaseki and his Deputy, Comrade Philip Shaibu, played the role of ‘Father Christmas’ to the admiration and excitement of the children.
The event, which was hosted by wife of the Governor, Mrs. Betsy Obaseki, held out an exciting moment for the children who clapped and danced after the Governor and his Deputy.
The unique event also afforded the children the opportunity to engage in various fun-sports activities such as bouncing castle, merry-go-round, coconut ride, electric train, mountain climber, giant water slide, swimming pool, giant shark attack, aeroplane rocking ride, dolly coin machine, princess castle, superman castle, children boogie bike, octopus, inflatable football among others.

On hand to support Mrs. Betsy Obaseki was wife of the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Maryann Shaibu.
