Member of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ughelli Correspondent Chapel, Comrade Blessed Hossana Ejogharado has enjoined Christians to always look up to God for blessings and longevity as he marked his 77th birthday.
The veteran journalist gave this advice during his birthday thanksgiving service held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Orerokpe on Sunday 28th June 2020.
Bishop Blessing Erifeta, in his sermon titled: “Unity in Christ” said longevity is of the lord. He said the issue of longevity is between you and the lord to settle. “If you want to live long, go to God for it. The words of our mouth determine the length of our life”.
Continuing Bishop of Sapele Anglican Diocese said “We shouldn’t allow the devil to cut short our life. Your enjoyment of longevity is based on your faith in God”, he noted.
He advised Christians to control their tongue if they want to live a comfortable life, adding that they should honour their parents and the elderly in the society. He advised members of the society to key into the celebration of old people for their life to change and enjoy their blessings.
In his testimony, Ejogharado who was given birth to on the 25th of June, 1943, said that he decided to celebrate his 77th year birthday when he found out that most of his mates were already dead and some others suffering from chronic diseases.
He stated further that he had experienced a lot of fatal accidents which led to the loss of his friends and co-passengers but God saved him. He enjoined Christians to always look up to God for blessings and longevity as that has been the secret of his life.
Rt. Hon. Sunday Apah, Chairman, NUJ, Ughelli Correspondents Chapel, Comrade Mathias Ogbagah, Secretary, NUJ Ughelli Correspondents, Chapel, Comrade George Igbi, Comrade Victor Okpomor, Chairman, NUJ, Warri Correspondents Chapel and others attended the ceremony.
