Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has urged religious bodies to beg God to intervene in the several challenges bedeviling Nigeria and the global economy.

He recently revealed that Nigeria needs proper support from the Christian bodies in ending the nation’s challenges.

According to him, Christians can help in our battle against insecurity, unemployment, poverty, coronavirus pandemic, and recession, as God is ready to listen to our prayers.

He then blamed the growing rate of youth restiveness, unemployment, and insecurity on poor parental guidance and begged religious organizations to help in the sensitization of our youths.

His words, “There is no doubt that a lot has to be done in order to improve the standard of living of our people. Unfortunately, unemployment is increasing by the day and even those who are employed, a large percentage of them are under-employed because the resources they earn is not to keep their families going,”

“I also believe that as we discuss issues around COVID-19, we should pray for our nation, Nigeria. We believe that spiritual impact on our nation is actually required to take us out of where we are and the more we begin to know our God and rely on Him, the more our people get to realise that we must be our brothers’ keepers as God has instructed us to love our neighbours as ourselves.

“The youths of Nigeria are getting very restive because they cannot get gainful employment as we do not have enough industries and the private is not yet strong enough to absorb them.”

“I want to welcome you to Delta State and I am glad that you have chosen Delta State as a venue for your 41st annual convention. We are always very happy to host Christian leaders in the state.”
