It was an atmosphere lit with euphoric sensation of fulfillment crowned with a heartfelt praise and thanksgiving as a servant of God who doubles as a philanthropic missionary; Apostle Eugene Egwuatu Ogu of the Abundant Life Evangel Mission, celebrated his 56th birthday on Sunday the 22nd day of July, 2018.

The birthday ceremony which took place at the Abundant Life  premises, number 98 Omoi Orosi, hospital road, Port Harcourt witnessed an immeasurable show of love as a conflux of well wishers, members of the public and high profile individuals from across the country, especially the south south and the south eastern regions, graced the occasion in their appreciable numbers.

The natal day ceremony had as its Special Guest of Honor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Honourable Minister of Transportation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who was unavoidably absent but was duly and ably represented by his friend and political associate, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs.

Speaking on behalf of the Honourable Minister, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs reflected on the days when the well celebrated former Governor of Rivers State; Chief Rotimi, joined in a spiritual partnership for service to humanity with the great man of God, and benefited immensely from God’s favor thereafter.

While acknowledging the extensive services and the great impact of the Arm of Hope Foundation which was founded by Apostle Eugene Ogu and wife, the Honourable Minister through Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, encouraged individuals to keep a clean heart and always imbibe the spirit of love and charity in order to pull the downtrodden from the shadows of life. While referencing the biblical David and how he had a pure heart, he reminded the guests that God is more concerned about the content of human hearts than what we profess outwardly, and advised that it’s important for everyone to rid his heart of negativities and evil.

Speaking individually, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs recalled the charitable gesture of Chief Rotimi in partnering with the Arm of Hope Foundation to erect a school for the less privileged and described him as a lover of man, and as a man who is always willing to support every cause that seeks to protect people in the society who live in the shadows of life.

Other dignitaries in attendance include: Alabo Bekinbo Soberekon, Rt. Hon. Iyk Orji, Fmr. Deputy speaker Rivers State House of Assembly.  Engr. Samson Ngerrebara, Chairman Free Rivers Development Initiative. Hon. Celestine Akpobari, Lady Nancy Stephens. Rt. Hon. Ike C. Ibe; Fmr. Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly. Hon. Kennedy Ibe, member Imo State House of Assembly. Executive chairman of Obowu LGA, Hon. Chidi. Lady Patience Mbakwe and Obowu traditional council of Chiefs led by His Royal Highness, Eze Godwin Okeke and other respectable personalities.

Highlight of the event included awards of excellence in humanitarian services and leadership given to his excellency Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and another to Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs for his consistent display of affection and love for humanity.

The event closed with wonderful prayers and expressions of heartwarming appreciations to the special Guest of honor and to all the guests whose presence and patience made the day a success.
