The Governor of Delta State,Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa while delivering a keynote address titled, “the role of the church in interceding for our leaders” at the occasion of dedication of Elohim Christian Centre today noted that the 2015 election was divisive,acrimonious and sentiments which run till today.
He said “with mounting economic pressure,worsening living standards,political uncertainty and the national unity of the country threatening to unravel,many of us in the church are busy pointing fingers,casting aspersions and digging deeper into our positions,even if prejudiced.
This adversarial disposition,motivated by the desire for personal vindication,has somewhat relegated prayer for those in authority to the background”.He charged Christians to intercede for the country. “As Christians,we have been called to stand in the gap for our nation and pray that His will for the country,the leaders and the governed be established.”
