Live a life of impact- Okowa to residents

The Governor of Delta State, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa said people will be remembered by how they impacted the lives of others, not by the number of years they lived on the earth.

The Governor made the disclosure during a funeral mass for Mr Anthony Obuh, a former Commissioner and the Chairman Bureau for State Pensions in Delta State.

He disclosed that the former Commissioner made a lot of impact on family and friends and did a lot for Delta State.

“We should have confidence that the family will continue to maintain the name Tony Obuh made while he was alive. I want to encourage the family that we need to realise that the best we can do for our departed father is to maintain the kind of life that will give deep meaning to his life; it is time to stay strong and believe in God that He trusted.”

“We want to give God the glory for a life well spent by our brother and friend. It is not how long you lived but how you lived, and we are here to bid farewell to someone each and every one of us will remember for a very long time.”

“The pains as a result of his passage will soften when you look at this church and see a huge number of persons gathered to bid him farewell; Tony lived a very good life “.

The Catholic Bishop of Issele-Uku Diocese, Most Rev. Michael Elue had in a homily, said the passage of Obuh should rekindle our faith in the risen Christ.

“We implore God’s mercy and commend the soul of our brother to the hand of God; it is important that we live a good life while on earth; death doesn’t terminate life, it ushers us into the life of immortality”.

“Our presence here today in this number is an indication of the type of life he lived, whenever we are burying someone, we use the opportunity to re-examine our own lives”.
