Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri has said death remains an inevitable end for every mortal but one’s life is measured by the impact one makes, not the longevity.
Governor Diri made the assertion at the Service of Songs held in honour of Mr. Tolu Amatu, late Bayelsa State Environmental Sanitation Authority Chairman, who died on the 10th of this month.
While eulogizing the contributions of the late Amatu to Ekeremor Local Government Area and Bayelsa State, Governor Diri, represented by his deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, noted that he rendered useful services to his people and the state.
The State Chief Executive said the deceased left deep footprints as a brother, comrade and firm believer of the truth who was always committed to his convictions.
Earlier, in an exhortation, Pastor Salem Samson of the Salvation Ministries called on Christians to daily reflect on their lives and strive to please God.
The clergyman noted that one’s life will determine the path of one’s journey after death and admonished faithful to live in peace and love fellow man.
In their goodwill messages, some political associates of the deceased including Dr. Tonye Isenah, Mr. Ken Kaiama and Mr. Tiwe Orunemighe, encouraged the immediate and extended family of Mr. Tolu Amatu to take solace in the legacies he left behind.
