Funeral Service Of Madam Unuajowhofia Ititi Edevbie

A funeral mass for Madam Unuajowhofia Ititi Edevbie took place at the Ibru Ceremonial grounds Agbarha - Otor, Ughelli. 

 Speaking at the event, Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, charged Nigerians to positively impact on humanity in such a manner that people could speak well of them when they exit on earth.

Governor Okowa gave the charge during the funeral service held in honour of late Madam Ititi Unuajohwhofia Edevbie at Agbara-Otor in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state.

He disclosed that it was important for Nigerians to ensure that they do the best that they could in the interest of humanity, adding that they should accept the Lord Jesus by giving their life to God.

While saying that he was impressed with the life Madam Unuajohwhofia Edevbie lived, the governor said “very importantly, I have listened to the biography of mama and I am very delighted to note that she impacted positively on the lives of people who came in contact with her when she was alive and that she was a model to several persons.

“We are celebrating mama today, she is already gone. It is between her spirit and the Lord our God but the real thing that we are doing here today is about those of us who are alive. When you are gone, what would you be remembered for?

“So, truly, this funeral service is not about mama because she is gone already and to God be the glory for her life. It is about those of us who are living. We have to ensure that we do the best we can.

“First, is to accept the Lord Jesus and give your life to God. Secondly is to ensure that you impact on humanity in such a manner that when you exit, when people gather together, they will have sweet stories to tell about you, about how you touched lives even as we have heard about what mama did.”

Earlier in his sermon titled “Death As A Gospel,” the Vice President (Ministerial) of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Revd. Dr. Dickson Madoghwe who applauded the children of the centenarian for taking good care of their mother when she was alive, said death as a gospel, reminds us that the world is not our permanent home.

Revd. Madoghwe who quoted copiously from the holy Bible enjoined Christians in the country to live an impactful and purposeful life, pointing out that death as a gospel, reminds Christians to live with eternity in view.

He, therefore, urged Christians to wholeheartedly receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour, stressing that they should endeavour to have daily communion with God. Madam ititi was 109 years until her death.

In attendance were also several government dignitaries including His Excellency, Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa; The Deputy Governor of Delta State, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro; The Deputy President of the Senate, Obarisi  Ovie Omo-Agege; The Governor of Cross River State represented by his Chief of Staff, Chukwuemeka Woke; The Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo; The former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori and the former Deputy Governor of Delta State, Benjamin Elue. 

A guest reception held after at the same venue. @ Ibru Center, Agbara-Otor, Delta State, Nigeria.
