Theodore-OrjiGovernor Theodore Orji of Abia State on Sunday led other government functionaries to a commemorative church service marking the 23rd anniversary of the creation of the state.

Mr. Orji said at the Assemblies of God Church, Nkporo Street, Umuahia, that “today is a day set aside to present the state to God”.

He said the remarkable thing about this year’s celebration is the fact that this is the last anniversary of the state creation that I will celebrate as governor.

He urged the people to emulate the life of Christ, in line with the Abia slogan “God’s Own State”.

In his sermon, the Superintendent, Jerusalem District, Umuahia North, James Ndukwe, urged the people to join the government in its efforts to develop the state.

“My prayer is that God will raise men, who will appreciate what the government is doing at any point in time and lend their support to state development”, Mr. Ndukwe said.

He urged politicians to shun evil and cult practices and embrace God so that His glory would reign in the state.

Mr. Ndukwe, blamed past governors and their aides for the failure and backwardness of the state.

Commissioners, politicians and a former Nigeria’s Consul-General to South Africa, Okey Amuchay, attended the church service.

The others were Anaghi Ezeikpe and Bob Ogbuagu, the Chairman and Secretary, State Advisory Council, and Eze Eberechi Dick, Chairman, Council of Traditional Rulers, among others.
