Delta governor’s wife urges prayer for husband to succeed



Tobore, wife of Gov. Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta, has tasked residents to pray for the governor to actualise his agenda of taking the state to greater height.

Tobore said this in Asaba at the 17th Mothers Arise annual prayer conference, with the theme:” Remember me oh Lord”.

She advised women in the state not to lose hope due to current challenges bedeviling the country.

”I want to appeal to all my sisters here to continue to support my husband for his MORE agenda to succeed for us to enjoy the dividends of democracy in our state.

“There is nothing there; all you need is God’s guidance in all you do.

”Because with God, all things are possible and with prayers nothing shall be impossible,” she added.

She urged them to ensure love among themselves.

”This is what defines us as Christians,” she said.

She commended wives of former governors for making the programme an annual event.

”I thank God for giving Mrs Roli Uduaghan this vision and for saying yes to God.

”She ran this programme for eight years and handed it over to my predecessor, Dame Edith Okowa who also ran it for another eight years before handing over to me, today, I’m standing here to take over from my mother and my mentor, Dame Okowa,” she said.

The governor’s wife also commended the ministers, the women who made the event a reality.

Earlier, the Assistant Chaplain of Government House Chapel, Pastor Solomon Nathaniel who took his sermons from the books of
Isaiah 49:15-16 and Isaiah 43:26, 41:21, stressed the need for mothers to go back to the old time religion of keeping active prayer alters in their homes.

He also admonished them to be visionary, anticipating what the future would produce, given the kind of seeds being sown into the lives of the children of this generation.

Our correspondent reports that the event attracted women across the state.
