Delta State Deputy Governor Barr. Kingsley Otuaro has called on all Ijaw sons & daughters to seek the face of God in all their activities. The State Deputy Governor Barr Kingsley Otuaro, made the call at the l9th Izon day of prayer, praise and thanksgiving organized in Warri by the Izon Christian Fellowship, Delta state chapter. Barr Otuaro, lauded the group for launching a spiritual attack on the forces working against the over all good of Izon nation and pledged to provide logistics and other things needed to embark on the evangelism of Christ to all Izon towns in the state.

The state deputy governor asserted that any community that enthrones Christ as their head cannot suffer physically and spiritually pointing out that the only way to breakthrough was by total acknowledgment of the supremacy of the Almighty God.

He urged all Izon indigenes to work as a team in breaking the jinx of underdevelopment and deprivation advocating that peace and tranquility was needed to make meaningful progress. In a sermon on the theme of the programme, a new name, Bishop Raphael Amaruntowa, of the Church of God Mission, Port Harcourt, Rivers State called on everyone in position of trust to leave enviable legacies that will outlive them.

Bishop Amaruntowa, blamed the under development in Izon land to the proliferation of idols, insincerity on the part of those in the corridor of power and other stakeholders and advised the people: to lean on God for intervention.

He advised religious leaders to use their sermons to correct ills in the society emphasizing that unmerited praise singing and sycophancy should not be traced to men of God. The State chairman of the Izon Christian fellowship Reverend Emmanuel Imeleye, said the cardinal goal of the annual event was to cross fertilize ideas on the progress made so far in the propagation of the gospel and sued for the support of all in making donations towards this year's crusade slated for all Izon communities in the state. The open air thanksgiving featured prayers for the Izon nation, the state and the country at large democratic value that is painfully fought for and called on authorities concerned to immediately ensure that the matter is handled and dispensed with.
