The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has charged Christians to be steadfast in prayers to spur God’s intervention on security challenges in the country.
Okowa bared this notion at the 2nd session of the 7th Synod of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) at St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral, Oleh, Delta State, where he was represented by his Deputy, Deacon Kingsley Otuaro.
“The indices on security, development, gross domestic product and planning are not favourable. With redoubled prayers, God can positively rewrite the security and development narrative of Nigeria,” Okowa said.
The governor however appreciated the support the church has been giving the Delta State Government, and asked the church not to relent in being the change agent the people need.
"Any faceless individual coming to create more anarchy in our region should desist and embrace peace, as we will not allow saboteurs to instigate unruly act here. We are ready to partner with the security forces to maintain peace in the Niger Delta"
