Live a life of service to humanity, Kogi Speaker urges leaders

 

Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, Prince Matthew Kolawole, has charged leaders to always live a life of service to humanity, so as to advance the society and be positively judged by posterity.

 

Our Kogi State Correspondent reports that Kolawole who made the call during his, "Victory Thanksgiving and Presentation Service", at Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, Aiyeteju-Kabba in Kabba-Bunu Local Government of Kogi State, said leaders should know they would render account of their stewardship and sojourn on Earth.

 

"As a child of God, I believe strongly in death and that whatever you do today, will be a story for tomorrow and for that reason, I have decided that I will continue to do my best for humanity”, he stated.

 

Kolawole who presented a Toyota Avensis (Wagon) to Pastor of the church, Emmanuel Benjamin and a Volkswagen Sharon to the Local Government Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, said he would continue to appreciate God for his benevolence.

 

The lawmaker said that the presentation was in fulfilment of his electioneering campaign promises and appreciation of God's benevolence in his life.

 

Kolawole who is the first representative of the Kabba-Bunu State Constituency to be re-elected and a second term Speaker of the House, added, "my secret is that I praise God a lot. Learn from me, do the will of God and He will do it for you."

 

The Speaker who was accompanied by his wife and five children, also presented a drum set, microphones and other musical instruments to the church, just as he rendered gospel songs to the glory of God.

 

The Obaro of Kabba, Oba Solomon Owoniyi in his remarks, urged youths to embrace “hard-work, venture out and strive to be relevant in life, rather than indulging in thuggery, social vices, crime or depending on somebody”.

 

He said, "please don't allow any cabal to suppress you. Move out and do the best you can to be somebody in life”, saying that from humble beginning as a farmer's son, God made him the Obaro of Kabba."

 

Earlier in his sermon, the Zonal Superintendent of the CAC, Oke-Igbala, Aiyeteju Zonal Headquarters, Kabba, Pastor Emmanuel Benjamin, whose message centred on, "Showing a Heart of Gratitude", admonished those in positions of leadership to always have the fear of God.

 

Benjamin who read from Psalms 135: 3-6 and I Kings 3:3, said King Solomon was blessed beyond his expectations, because he displayed a high level of gratitude to God and the Almighty added to him, riches, wisdom and understanding, that he did not ask for.
