Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that his administration will whole heartedly depend on God’s guidance in the midst of challenging times.
Governor Okowa was speaking Friday when he granted audience to the President of ILCOM College of Bishops, Archbishop John Praise Daniel, at the Government House Asaba.
According to the governor, “The reason for the early morning 30 minutes devotion and worship at the Government House Chapel is to invite God to order our steps as we strive to improve the lots of our people.”
While reminding the visiting Bishop and other official members of his delegation on the need for the Christian community to continue to pray to God on behalf of those in authority, particularly against the myriads of societal challenges adding that the words from the pulpit have enormous capacity to inspire hope even in the midst of uncertainty.
He stressed the imperative of a strong partnership between government and the church, while noting that such collaboration is capable of promoting good governance and moving the state forward.
Governor Okowa expressed concern about the prevalent of worshipers who now thronged the church in search of miracles as against the quest for salvation.
“Let me be very clear that miracle is important but salvation should come first in Christendom.”
Earlier, Archbishop John Praise Daniel told the governor that they were in the Government House to pray for the success and unity of the state and the Federal government.
Bishop Praise who said he is pleased with the disposition of Governor Okowa as a man that has enormous passion for God, prayed God to continually inspire the Governor to lead the state of greater heights
