Ondo Lawmakers, ODHA Staff Hold Thanksgiving Service

By Precious Oluwole

Following the directive of the state government that Ministries and Parastatal should set aside a day to Worship at the government house chapel, Akure, Ondo State House of Assembly staff including the lawmakers, on Sunday, 5th of March, came out in large numbers to appreciate God Almighty for His goodness.

The speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun who led the lawmakers and the Assembly staff to the service said they have many reasons to appreciate God Almighty, adding that despite the storm, the 9th Assembly is coming to an end in a complete number.

Speaking through the Clark of House, Barr. Benjamin Jaiyeola, the speaker said when Civil servants come together to join their faiths together with the government that is in power, it is a way of putting the government before God spiritually and once issues are addressed spiritually, the physical aspect of it is perfected.

Hon. Simeon Toluwani Borokini, the whip of the House said the act of worship was a welcome development and it is very important for us all to give thanks to God. He added that “Ondo State has been relatively peaceful and we can only look back and appreciate God for His faithfulness to us in our dear state”.

“Giving thanks to God is something that we must always do and extending the invitation to the legislative arm of government is a noble idea that is highly commendable because the three arms are working for the same government and the good people of our dear state to ensure that things get better”.

Borokini Appreciated Govenor Akeredolu for the initiative, adding that it must be sustained.

Earlier in His sermon titled ” Repent from your sins”, Evang. Femi Ayena noted that sin is an immoral crime.

Speaking from the book of Luke chapter 15, the man of God said that pride, rebellion, unbelieve are sins that every Christian must flee from.

“One day, you will leavey that post that you are and when you do, what will people say about you?. Repent from your sins, God is happy when you have a change of heart”.

“Change from evil to doing good, give your life to Christ, that is only when you can move according to his will, remember that He is watching you”.

Intercessory prayers for peace, blessings and development were offered for the people and the State.
