Fear of God Recipe for Countries’ Development, Says Ugwuanyi
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has urged the people of Enugu state to have faith in God and promote peace and harmony in all their endeavours, saying that any nation with the fear of God often experience positive developments arising from agreeable government policies.
The governor made the comment at the launch of a book written by Rev. Father Emeka Chikezie Ngwoke. The event held at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Ede-Oballa, Nsukka Local Government Area was also organized to commemorate Rev. Fr. Ngwoke’s 25 years as a priest.
He also charged the clergy, politicians, elder statesmen and the people to support his administration towards achieving its projects
and policies, noting that the ultimate goal of governments is to alleviate people’s sufferings.
He explained that the book titled, “The Gospel and Church in Service of Society” would help spread the gospel across the state and beyond,
adding that the author deserves everyone’s praises for the incisive work.
“Enugu State is in the hands of God and any nation that believes in God always experiences positive development as all your entitlements would be given to you in due course,” he said.
The chairman of the occasion and the former Minister of Information, Chief Nnia Nwodo, praised the governor’s humility, diligence and fear
of God evident in his simple leadership style.
