ASABA/Nigeria: The wife of Delta State Governor, Dame Edith Okowa, has called for increased national spiritual consciousness in the light of recent challenges facing the nation.
Mrs. Okowa stated this at the Government House in Asaba, during the 6th edition of the Annual Mothers Arise Programme with the theme: Faith for all Season.
She urge the citizenry to make decisions with eternity in view, while asserting that a spiritual awakening was needed to attain life-long victories.
“Once we have this knowledge the pursuit for here and there will reduce. The most important thing is where we are going to. Living in this world with eternity in view. So that we will be cautious of how we react, respond, do things. (Because) people are watching. God is watching.” She said.

Meanwhile, in a sermon, the Guest Speaker Pastor Blessing Ameachi, stressed the need to exercise faith to overcome challenges bedeviling the nation, nothing that with faith everything is possible as a Christian.
