…Says glory belongs to God


That Christianity has never felled to produce committed adherents who have continued to abide themselves with the tenets and philosophy of alms-giving is something that remains amongst historians unequivocal. From generations to generation this humanitarian act has remained life-wire upon which other religious precepts rest.

Aligning himself in this gesture, Dr. Chibuzo C. Iwuagwu, Permanent Secretary Imo State Ministry of Works yet again put smiles on the faces of indigent widows and less privileged women who gathered in his Owu Amakohia Ikeduru LGA family compound, Thursday December 28.

Since the inception of the maiden edition half a decade ago, December 28 has been a lookout date for these community women. Their satisfaction this time was also met as their benefactor along with his wife and children performed what they enjoy most.

The gathering did not just come as gifts sharing moment; it also featured prayers and worship session where a family friend, Rev. Fr. Jude Onuoha from the Mother of God congregation, took turn to pray for God’s continued guidance, progress and sustenance of the Iwuagwus and entire community. He asked God to protect the Permanent Secretary, particularly in his work place at the ministry, noting that God’s blessings upon him would equally mean more favors and Christmas packages for his people.

In a brief interactive moment with his guests, Dr Iwuagwu who was delighted that the women found time to answer his call thanked God for the opportunity of meeting them yet again. He observed with dismay the crunch economic situation of the day, but expressed gladness that the hardships couldn’t deter him from the promise he made with God. “At a point it became so difficult, and I told God to give me more grace. And today here we are, so we continue to thank God”, the father of five submitted with smiles.

While informing them to accept the gifts with cheerful hearts, Dr. Iwuagwu who is also a parishioner at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Amakohia Uratta, Owerri pointed out that his actions were not motivated by any ephemeral expectations, rather, “it’s my family’s little way of paying back to God the graces we received throughout the year.” He finally urged the women to join his family in glorifying God for the gift of his new born child, Chidiuto.

After receiving their gift items of food stuff and clothing, the beneficiaries who spoke on behalf of their respective kindred expressed sentiments of gratitude as they all in prayers handed Dr. Iwuagwu and family into God’s hand.
It should be noted that six-woman committee member was saddled with the task of coordinating the program.
