The traditional ruler of Ugbegun, His Royal Highness, Samuel Iwuno Obade II JP, the Enogie of Ugbegun, weekend, commended the Archbishop of Church of God Mission, Margaret Benson Idahosa for being a role model to her followers.
He gave the commendation while playing host to her in his palace at Ugbegun, Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State.
According to him “In all ramifications, you have taught your followers the good character because this is an example of good leadership in the Church of God Mission”,
The traditional ruler expressed hope that her visit to his palace will usher in blessings to the people of the community.
“Today’ courtesy visit, I assure you will explode so many happiness in so many homes. I am speaking with every authority in me and for those who know me, know what is in me and what I am led to say” HRH Obade said.
In her response, the Archbishop of Church of God Mission, Margaret Idahosa said she was in his palace to intimate him of the commissioning of an ultra modern provincial headquarters of the church in his community and to also pray with him for God’s blessings and wisdom upon him to lead his people.
The Archbishop who later moved to the venue of the commissioning where she addressed the congregation, assured them that the month of February marked the beginning of a new dawn in their lives.
On the part of the host Pastor, Rev. E. D. Olopele, the dedication of the ultra modern church building was historical because the day marked the year Church of God Mission is celebrating her 50th year while it also marked the 20th year of Archbishop Margret Benson Idahosa ordination as a Bishop of the church after the death of her husband, Archbishop Benson Idahosa.
He described the church as a model and a pride to Church of God Mission in particular and the body of Christ in general.
The Zonal Coordinator, Rev. G. O. C Nkem, thanked those who have laboured to ensure that the building of the church became a reality.
Also speaking, Rev. Matthew Okpebholo called on all believers to always support the development of the work of God in cash and in kind adding that no one ever supported the growth of His work and remain same.
