Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has challenged political office holders to serve the people with their positions, stating that they are accountable to the electorate.
The governor at a thanksgiving service of Evangelist Michael Diden, General Overseer, Mega Praise Church of Christ International, Sapele, on Sunday, maintained that public office holders are servants of the citizens.
Diden is Chairman of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC).
Okowa insisted that political positions are to be used to serve God through rendering selfless service to the people.
The thanksgiving was attended by the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege; National Assembly members, Speaker, Delta House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, and other top government functionaries.
“Any position we find ourselves is by the grace of God; if you have the privilege of holding a position, try to work for the people; wherever you do, remember there is God above who made your position possible,” Okowa said.
Congratulating Diden for his appointment, Okowa thanked God for what he was using the man to do.
He described him as a philanthropist and hard working politician who was sincere in his actions.
Earlier in a sermon, Diden had urged political office holders not to act on gossips.
“A leader should not listen and act on gossips; a leader should take time to verify the authenticity of the information he receives so as not to hurt an innocent person,” he admonished.
