The Governor made the call yesterday at the second matriculation and graduation ceremonies of The Meaningful Life Institute of Evangelism and Church Management at Mosogar, Ethiope West local government area of Delta State.

According to the Governor, “if we are committed to winning souls for Christ, obey the commandments of God, we will have a society that is very peaceful where people do things with the fear of God,  we will have good governance too.”

The governor observed that God has blessed Nigeria with abundant resources, and what the people require is to obey the word of God.

He commended Rev. Gideon Oyibo, Acting Provost of the institution for investing in an institute which will groom men of God, adding that it was also laudable that the institute was tuition free and has lecturers who volunteered to teach without salary.

The Governor admonished graduates of the institute to share the virtue of the Lord, Jesus Christ, stating, “Jesus was not only a teacher but, a friend and companion, the Christian message should always be at the core of your lives.”

Rev. Oyibo had in an address, thanked Governor Okowa’s administration for creating the enabling environment for private ventures and the word of God to thrive.
