Bayelsa State Deputy Governor Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo has called on Christians to bury their differences and work as one united body in the service of God and humanity.
He made the call at the inauguration of state officers for the Organisation of African Instituted Churches (OAIC), at the Eternal Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Kpansia in Yenagoa.
In a statement released by his media aide, Mr. Doubara Atasi, Ewhrudjakpo urged the Christian community to be more united now than ever in view of the challenges facing the church in particular and the society in general.
He noted that Christians would impact the society if only they upheld and practised the true values of Christianity, which were hinged on love, as espoused by Jesus Christ.
The deputy governor admonished them not to discriminate against one another on the basis of denominations and the Christian blocs they belong.
Congratulating the Chairman, Senior Apostle Michael Makpah, and other officials of the OAIC, he advised them to make patience, politeness, prayerfulness, and critical reflection as their guide, to avoid what he called “followers induced errors.”
