Nigeria in troubled times, Says Okowa
Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has said that Nigeria is in troubled times with a dwindling economy occasioned by various factors, including worsening insecurity across the country.
Okowa regretted that many people are hungry and can no longer feed themselves because they cannot farm the way they used to due to growing insecurity, adding: “Pray for our nation, because we are in troubled times. The country is insecure and our state is not left out, because whatever affects the country affects the states.
“We are in troubled times, because many people are hungry and cannot feed themselves, but we have hope that God will take control and change things for the better.
“Our economy has dwindled and insecurity is further worsening it. We can no longer farm as we used to, but we are hopeful that God is able to turn things around for the nation.”
The governor, who stated this yesterday at the funeral service of the late Mrs. Comfort Nwagimeje at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Agbor, condoled with the bereaved family and announced that the state government would construct Okwuijen Street in honour of the deceased.
“I know we have come here to mourn, but even in mourning of our dear mother, we still have to give thanks to God, because that is the teaching of the Holy Scripture.
