Speak truth to leaders Okowa urges clergy


Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta on Sunday urged the clergy in the country to be bold and speak truth to political leaders so as to make the nation better.

The governor gave the charge at a special church service to celebrate birthday of the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman, in Auchi, Edo.

He described Suleman as “a man being used by God”, and said that testimonies of his benevolence to Nigeria Correctional Centre, Auchi, through supports and interventions, had shown his love for humanity which Jesus Christ represented.

“I met Suleman for the first time at a crusade in Agbor and from that day I noticed the fact that God has a hand in his life.

“I thank God for what He is using him (Suleman) to do across the world; he is sent on a mission to humanity and to the world.

“I know that the church is not constituted by the building or the crowd but by the body of Christ, and from what I have seen here today, the Pastor is bringing the word of God to reality in many lives.
