Ibenanaowei of BomoClan in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, King Joshua Igbugburu has urged Bayelsans to support leaders at all levels to succeed instead of engaging in pull-down syndrome.
King Igbugburu, who made the admonition during a thanksgiving service held as part of activities to mark his 85 birthday celebration at Saint James Anglican church, Ekowe, said for a nation, state and community to succeed, the people must support their leaders.
King Igbugburu, who is the pioneer Chairman, Bayelsa State Traditional Rulers Council and former Chairman, Nine Eastern States Traditional Rulers in old Rivers state, encouraged Christians to appreciate God to get to a higher level.
Recounting some of his experiences, the octogenarian said he has been a vessel in Lord’s vineyard through his King Igbugburu for Christ Foundation, winning souls in Ayama-Ijaw, Oweikorogha, Ekowe and Isampou, communities.
Speaking on the theme: Harvest of Divine intervention”, Vicar and Supervisor, Saint James Anglican Church, Ekowe, Alasuonyo Micah enjoined Christians to imbibe the spirit of thanksgiving to access the goodness of God.
The Vicar cited Noah who offered offering to appreciate God after the flood and urged Christians to learn from the recent flood and be closer to God.
Earlier, member representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 3 in the House of Assembly, Mr. Moses Malone who was the Chief Harvester said he was touched by the octogenarian’s faith in investing in God.
The event was climaxed with the foundation laying of the Church of God Mission, Ekowe branch with the monarch’s family and others.
