PHOTOS: God’s promise to make Oyo prosperous is not in doubt— Makinde 

MOUTHPIECE NGR reports that Oyo State Governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, has reaffirmed God’s promise of prosperity for the state as a reality that his administration is determined to achieve.

The governor, while re-affirming his faith in a prosperous Oyo State yesterday at the Omituntun 2023 Mega-Praise and End of the Year thanksgiving, held at the Government House Arcade, Agodi, Ibadan, noted that the state has been blessed with abundant natural and human resources and that with proper planning and implementation, Oyo can become one of the most prosperous states in Nigeria.

The end-of-year thanksgiving mega-praise organised by the governor, with the theme; “Sacrifice of Praise (Ebo Ope),” had in attendance dignitaries from different walks of life that converged to celebrate the end of the year with the governor, which literarily coincided with his birthday.

Speaking further, Makinde attested to the importance of sacrifice and gratitude, which resonate with the Christmas season, a time of thanksgiving and celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. 

The governor noted that Jesus’ birth was a sacrifice made by God for the salvation of humanity and that it is important to remember this sacrifice during the Christmas season.

The governor said that his birthday is an opportunity to celebrate God’s faithfulness and to give thanks for His blessings, using the occasion to reaffirm his commitment to serving the people of the state with humility and dedication.

The governor urged all residents of Oyo to use this season to give back to those in need and to demonstrate their gratitude for God’s blessing.

In his sermon, the Presiding Pastor of the Living Spring Chapel, Pastor Femi Emmanuel, pointed out that the concept of sacrifice is deeply embedded in the Bible.

He noted that God has always required sacrifices from His people, describing several ways that one could make sacrifices to God.

The man of God said these include offering time, talents, and our resources to further God’s kingdom.

Pastor Emmanuel, however, encouraged the congregation to think about what they could offer to God and to make it a priority in their lives.

He stressed that even small sacrifices can make a big difference and that it is important to approach them with the right attitude.

A congregational prayer was, however, led, asking for God’s blessing and protection over Governor Makinde, his family, and the state at large.
