With a joyful heart and thanks giving to God Almighty, I wish to appreciate Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for recognizing me for my outstanding achievements as a Nigerian Youth and awarding me as the INEC Youth Ambassador! I give God all the glory.
The presentation ceremony was done by Dr. Chris Iyimoga, National Commissioner, INEC at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) -Nigerian Youth Summit with theme; “Nigerian Youth: Working for peaceful elections, deepening our democracy” at Chelsea Hotel, Abuja on 19th – 20th January, 2015.
Friends, God looks at the heart and knows when you are passionate about what you do. It has occurred to me that it is not really by the multitudes of what you do or the efforts you put in doing things, it is God who shows mercy and favor. Little wonder the Word of God says “…. That the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all (Ecc 9:11)”.
I wish to encourage Nigerian Youth to be committed to the work of their hands. Don’t give up, keep doing what you are doing and remember that what is worth doing is worth doing well.
I also want to use this opportunity to appreciate members of The Bridge Youth Development Foundation for allowing me to practice youth development. I wish to thank Mrs. Ene Edeh of Equity Advocates, facilitators of Okpokwu Information Resource Center, Ugbokolo for the nomination to INEC. I wish to thank INEC for recognizing my youth works. I wish to thank my parents and siblings for their support. I wish to thank Apostle Tony Akor of Blossom Family Assembly, Otukpo for his mentorship and spiritual guidiance over my life. I wish to specially thank my friend, Blessing Agbese for believing in my dream.
I give God all the glory. Friends, to live is to participate. One Love.
