*As Elue calls for humility and simplicity in service
Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa yesterday (20/12/15) led top government functionaries to attend the thanksgiving service of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu.
The thanksgiving service took place at the All Saints Catholic Church, Onicha Ugbo, Aniocha North local government area of Delta State.
Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Issele-Uku, Rt. Rev. Michael Elue in a sermon urged political office holders to imbibe the virtue of humility and simplicity, saying, “You stand to gain everything when you are humble and when you are simple.”
He commended Dr Kachikwu for giving thanks to God, saying the Christians should pray for him to succeed as Minister and Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
“The Minister has invited us to pray with him so that he will grow in his calling, he also know that without the assistance of God, no good can be achieved by anybody and no strategy can succeed,” the Bishop said, adding, “he desires that his brothers and sisters pray for him to succeed.”
“Jesus said we should be perfect as His Heavenly Father is perfect; Jesus does not want us to be just ordinary; the command is, you must be exceptional; so, we remind our brother that he, as a Catholic should be exceptional in his job because, our vocation as Catholics is to be salt of the earth and the light of the world; the world may be a very dangerous place but our lives should redeem it,” the Bishop emphasized.
Governors, captains of industries also, attended the ceremony.
Also, yesterday, Governor Okowa attended the dedication of the Church of Advent of Christ, Anglican Communion at Boji Boji Owa, Ika North-East local government area of Delta State.
At the occasion, the Arch-Bishop, Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh said “Christianity is a movement that brings refreshment to the people.”
He stated that, “Christians must be active and progressive till Jesus comes, how you live, what you do, have eternal consequence.”
