President of the Senate, David Mark, on Wededay urged politicians to put God first as the 2015 elections draw near.
Mark, according to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, in Abuja, spoke at a church service to mark the one year rememberance of the pioneer priest of the St. Mulumba Catholic Chaplaincy Apo, late Rev. Fr. Jerome Bello.
He stated that death is a necessary end that must come when it shall but man is always scared of it, saying “what is paramount is for man to live a righteous life and be prepared for it.
Mark said, “Therefore, whatever we do as humans, we must be conscious of the fact that we must one day die and after death, judgment, where all mortals must give account of his or her stewardship on earth.
“Our politics is again gathering momentum and people are already joining the fray. All of us, politicians must realize that we must put God first in all we do.
That is the only way, we can succeed. Whatever we do, let it be to the glory of God and service to humanity.” He also called on Nigerians not despair in the face of the myriads of challenges but to resort to the Almighty creator for solution.
