Akobundu Abia Central Senate PDP candidate Appeal to the Church to Pray for the Country .

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Abia Central Senatorial District, Col Austin Akobundu (rtd) made this appeal on Sunday at the All St.Anglican Church Ndoro Oboro in Ikwuano LGA of Abia State during the Ikwuano Diocese Synod thanksgiving service, said this in a precarious period that needs the intervention of men of God to pray and restore sanity to our country.

He pledged to assist the All Saints Anglican Church, Ndoro Oboro to tackle some of its challenges, even as he observed that despite the numerous security challenges, God has remained faithful in protecting Nigeria and its citizens from total destruction.

In his homily at the service, the guest preacher, Rt. Rev Dr. Manasseh Okere, urged Christians to always worship God in spirit, arguing that since God created man in His own image and after His likeness, He expects nothing order than dedicated service unto Him.

On the theme of the Synod which is: Pentecostal: The Secret of Mission and Worldwide Evangelism”, Rt Rev Okere who is also the Bishop of Ukwa Dioceses of church, insisted that Christians must be accountable to their creator in order to make heaven.

Earlier, the Anglican Bishop of the Ikwuano Diocese, Rt Rev Dr Chigozirim Onyebule had described Akobundu as a humanoid and God-fearing child of God who has done some great jobs for the service of God and mankind.

The former minister also visited St. Peter’s Anglican Nkata Ibeku Diocese of Umuahia, where he said told the congregation that as a child of God, he would not relent in supporting the programs and activities of God, assuring that he will make his inputs towards the development of the church to the archdeacon.

He describes the deacon of the church, Ven. Chukwuemeka Oparaocha as a friend and dedicated man of God and assured that he would continue to identify with all the challenges confronting the church.

The PDP Abia Central candidate used the opportunity to call for the continued prayers and support of the Anglican Communion for him, noting that their prayers will be very vital in his electoral victory.

Earlier, Ven. Oparaocha had appreciated Akobundu and his entourage for identifying with the church. The highlights of the church services were the special prayers offered for Col. Akobundu and his entourage.
