The Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has called on Christian leaders to teach the flock of Christ to release their faith for national development and progress of the nation. He made this call while reading his address at the official opening ceremony of the 2019 Standing Committee Meeting taking place at the Cathedral of St Peter Anglican Church Asaba, Delta State.
He observed that many Christians are good at utilizing their faith for personal needs, but are found wanting when it comes to exercising their faith for the nation, Nigeria. He said the words of a Christian is powerful and therefore believers should stop speaking negatively about the nation, because it invalidates their prayers. The governor urged Christians to speak peace and prosperity over Nigeria; explaining that it will be well with Nigeria, if Christians continue to exercise their faith and continue to stand in the gap for Nigeria.
