We can do many things there but I would aim for minimal approach that

You have that info in "issue" and "". Putting that into "motd"
I think would be incorrect:

motd (5) - message of the day

The abbreviation "motd" stands for "message of the day", and
this file has been traditionally used for exactly that (it
requires much less disk space than mail to all users).
