Delta Governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa has called on Christians to dedicate their lives to serving God.

He made the call on Saturday, September 21, at the dedication of St. John’s Anglican Church and a Vicarage at Ibabu, Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the state. The church was built by Sir Monday Onyeme, Chairman, Delta State Board of Internal Revenue.

According to the governor, “Building for the Lord is the best gift you can give when God blesses you.

“Building physical structures for the Lord is good, but, the greatest gift you can give is what you do in your heart; my prayer is that the prayers said in this place will uplift the people.

“Christians must continue to pray for the state and Nigeria, no matter the challenge, it is not time to grumble, it is time to pray for God to turn things around for our nation; we will continue to do more roads.”

He commended Sir Onyeme for donating such edifice to the Church, assuring that his administration will construct a six classroom block for Anglican Grammar School, Obiaruku.

Bishop of Ndokwa Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev. David Obiosa, in a sermon, said: “The whole duty of man is to serve the Lord; we are here for the dedication of this church and the vicarage built by Sir Monday Onyeme for a purpose; it is building a place for prayer for the worship of God who made us and has continued to empower us.”

He commended the donors of the church building and urged the people to utilise the church to seek the face of God.

Some of those who were at the event include Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori and other top government functionaries.
