The Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has lamented that Nigeria was in troubled times with a dwindling economy occasioned by various factors, including worsening insecurity across the nation.
Okowa who spoke at the funeral service of late Mrs. Comfort Nwagimeje at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Agbor, told Nigerians to ask God in prayer to change the situation, decrying that “many people are hungry and can no longer feed themselves because they can’t farm the way they used to due to growing insecurity.
“Pray for our nation because we are in trouble times; the country is insecure and our state is not left out because whatever affects the country affects the states.
“We are in trouble times because many people are hungry and can’t 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.”
While condoling the family of Nwagimeje on the demise of their matriarch, he promised that the state government would construct Okwuijen Street, Agbor, in honour of the departed Comfort Nwagimeje.
The Governor said: “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.
“I’m glad that I am in your midst today to celebrate the life and times of Ezinne Comfort Nwagimeje, who was dear to all of us.
“She was very dear to all of us because she was the wife of somebody we hold dear to our heart, Pa John Nwagimeje.
