Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Delta state on Political Matters, Honourable Emeke Egwuanimkwu, on Sunday called out colleagues, political associates, friends and well wishers for thanksgiving to appreciate God for the success of a traditional marriage to the love of his life, Henrietta, consumated on Saturday at Boji Boji Owa, Ika north east local government area of Delta state.
The thanksgiving, which took place at the Ancient of Days Revival Church, Boji Boji Owa, was also to show appreciation for his appointment as SSA, Political, by Governor Ifeanyi OKowa.
In a message, the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Isaiah Celestine, said it was important for everyone to thanks God for any accomplishment because the opportunity could only come by the Grace of God.
Pastor Isaiah described Ominimini as a lucky man having been appointed from among many other eminently qualified politicians, adding that the incident that led to his getting married to Henrietta was enough to be thankful to God.
In a testimony, Honourable Egwuanimkwu recounted an ugly incident that followed the death of his former wife about two years ago and thanked God for using Pastor Isaiah to see him through the travail.
He thanked God and Governor Ifeanyi OKowa for his appointment and promised to use his position to serve God and humanity.
For other equally pressing engagements the Senior POLAD, Honourable Funkekeme Solomon, was not at the thanksgiving service, but made an impressive showing, with other political aides to the Governor attached to his office, at a reception held for guests at Owa Model Primary School, Boji Boji Owa.
In a brief remark, Honourable Solomon described Ominimini as a grassroots politician of note who had visibly demonstrated great passion for his duties.
He congratulated him on his successful marriage and advised him to savour the love he shared with his wife in order to build a happy home.
The reception featured cutting of cake, couple’s dance and presentation of gifts.
It was attended by Executive Assistants, Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants to the Governor on Political Matters, politicians from the Ika Federal Constituency and beyond, the clergy and members of Ulo Ru Ulo support group convened by the celebrant, Honourable Egwuanimkwu.
