Delta State Governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori has urged citizens to pray for ongoing peace, unity, progress, and prosperity in both the state and the nation, particularly during these challenging times.

This appeal was made during the 25th Priestly Ordination Anniversary and Book Presentation of Very Rev Fr. Dr. Christopher Ekabo at Christ the King Catholic Church, Obiaruku, Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State. Fr.

In his message of goodwill during the event, Governor Oborevwori encouraged individuals to remain vigilant and report any activities that may endanger peace and security in the state. Additionally, while congratulating Very Rev. Fr. Dr. Christopher Ekabo on his 25th priestly silver jubilee anniversary, the Governor acknowledged the undeniable impact and accomplishments achieved through his ministry, attributing them to divine assistance.

I pray that God will multiply His grace and anointing upon your life and make you a greater blessing to God’s people under your care the body of Christ and humanity in general. I encourage you to continue banking on divine help on your priestly assignment.

“To the congregation, friends and well-wishers, I urge you to offer prayers for peace, unity, progress and prosperity to continue to reign in our dear state and country Nigeria, especially in this trying period.

“Government appreciates your goodwill and contributions towards the development of our state as we journey towards the actualisation of the ordained MORE Agenda.

“Furthermore, let us all remain our brother’s keepers as we expose evil machinations and continue supporting the government in our effort to safeguard lives and property in our dear state.”

The Governor had earlier unveiled a book written by Fr Ekabo, titled; “A Presidential Option for the Nigerian marginalised: A Theological Approach”.
