Deputy Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Barr. (Dcn) Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, has said the Ijaw nation can achieve its developmental aspirations if it dedicates itself to God.
Otuaro spoke in Warri, while delivering a keynote address entitled: “The Power of Unity,” at the 20th edition of Izon Day of Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving 2017, which held at BB Hotel Ceremonial Grounds, Deco road, Warri, Delta State.
Represented by Hon. Bulou Kosin, his Senior Special Assistant on Communication and Press, the deputy governor said Matthew 6:33 was not intended to be deceitful when God’s word stated that we should “seek first God’s kingdom and all other things will be added to us.
” Otuaro said when the Izon Christian Fellowship (ICF) initiated the Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving 20 years ago in Warri and went into fervent supplications to God Almighty, the Ijaw nation was yet to have a shot at the Presidency before it advanced to achieving same and now has a Deputy Governor in Delta State for the first time. These, Otuaro said, were results of praying and getting more involved in the things of the Lord.
