… consoles family, church of Late Bishop Moswill Umoh
In his avowed determination to provide quality healthcare for Akwa Ibom people in the hinterlands, Governor Umo Eno has moved to resuscitate the General Hospital project in Ikot Akpa Nkuk, Ukanafun Local Government Area.
Speaking at the project location of the hospital, which has been left uncompleted for about a decade due to litigations, Governor Eno directed the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Augustine Umoh, to liaise with the contractor and relevant stakeholders in the community and furnish him with details on the status of the project and requirements for completion.
He also directed the commencement of work on access road to the hospital to allow for quick and smooth access to the medical facility.
The Governor who had earlier attended a Church Special Service in honour of the deceased General Overseer of Rapture Trust Gospel Ministries, late Bishop Moswill Umoh, expressed gratitude to the people of Ukanafun for their support in the last governorship election, and promised to sustain his administration’s rural development drive in the Ukanafun community.
The governor said his attendance at the service was to show solidarity to the deceased Cleric’s family and the Church over the loss and described the late Moswill Umoh as a strong voice in promoting the gospel of Christ.
To him, Late Bishop Umoh was a dependable ally who gave him strong support during his governorship bid and thanked God that Umoh raised a worthy successor in his son, to further his vision.
He said : “coming here is a small way of saying thank you. I appreciate you. But most importantly to show solidarity with the family of our late Bishop Moswill Umoh who loved me and I can say so very clearly.
‘He has been to our church, preached in our conventions and he loved family. The man was everywhere, even when he had some challenges with his legs. He would come for campaigns and would be in every political meeting. He was a mighty voice among the Fathers of Faith”.
Eldest son of the deceased Cleric, Pastor Ekponoabasi Moses Wilson Umoh, thanked the governor for the visit, which he said was love driven based on the relationship with his late father.
He described his late father as a man of faith and source of inspiration, saying that the governor’s visit was a great honour to the family.
Ekponoabasi announced that the remains of late Bishop Moswill Umoh will be given final interment on September 30, 2023 at Ikot Akpa Nkuk, Ukanafun LGA
Delivering a sermon on the topic, “Higher Ground for Gospel Bearers”, with scriptural reference from Matthew 5:3-14, Rev. Ndueso Ekwere of the United Evangelical Church, said Jesus being on the mountains placed him on a higher ground to show God to men and impact on their lives.
The former State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN , admonished gospel ministers, government officials and leaders to rise up to the duty of impacting on the lives of people, and also charged leaders at all levels to be responsible to the people they serve.
