Christians have been urged to live a life that will be accountable to God while thy live on earth.

A clergyman Rev Obong Ndueso Obong gave the charge at the commendation service of late Mrs Aliaba Wellington Bobmanuel at Christ Church Interdenominational Port Harcourt.

Rev Nduess noted that people have the misconception that life begins at 40 years, but contended that life begins at birth

He warned Christians not to aid abortion, adding that anybody who dares it , aborts a life that came from God.

The clergyman who took his lesson from book James chapter 4 verse 13-17 urged Christians and the bereaved family to seek God’s direction and shun selfish interests in their daily endeavour.

He described the late Mrs Aliaba Wellington Bobmanuel as a mother and sister to all who loved God, and lived a life worthy of emulation.

Speaking with The Tide, a one time Rivers State Commissioner for Works, Chief David Briggs described the deceased as a woman of substance who had love for humanity, a trait which she had left behind for her children to imbibe in their daily lives. He urged the children to ensure that these virtues do not depart from their life style.

Also speaking the former captain of Port Harcourt Golf Club, Barrister Disrael Abobbo Bobmanuel said the deceased was so dear to him as mother and the rest of the children, adding that her transition had created a vacuum, considering her very active role in the family circle.

He noted that the love she exhibited towards her children and humanity has taught them how to forgive and love one another.

Late Aliaba Wellington Bobmanuel was laid to rest over the weekend in her home town Abonnema, in Akuku Toru Local Government Area.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
