REV, Fr. Louis Ogbebi has described the life of late Pa. Moses Ejakpovi as worthy to be emulated by every Christian.
The Priest made the call Thursday evening (this evening – 23/06/16)) while delivering a sermon at the service of songs held to signal the commencement of rites of passage for late Pa. Ejakpovi at his residents at Emevor, Isoko North local government area of Delta State.
According to the Priest, the deceased “lived an exemplary life, a devout Catholic, a good friend to so many and will be deeply missed.”
He observed that it was painful to lose such a man despite his age.
“There is never a time when death is welcomed by any one, no matter how old your relative may be, you will never wish such a person death and I want to thank every one of us who is here today to pray for our father, I think he was the eldest in our parish here; he was a man to be emulated,” the Priest said, adding, “he was a fulfilled man, he had successful children and contributed immensely to the growth of the Church in Emevor.”
At the occasion, one of his sons, Dr. (Pharm.) Nelson Ejakpovi who is the Chairman, Governing Council, College of Health Technology, Ofuoma-Ughelli, while thanking those who attended the ceremony, urged them to attend the funeral Mass on Friday, June 24th, 2016 (tomorrow) at the funeral Mass which will take place at James Welch Grammar School, Emevor.
He disclosed that the Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa is among dignitaries expected to attend the funeral Mass.
Earlier the Provost, Delta State College of Health Technology, Ofuoma-Ughelli, Dr. (Mrs.) Agnes Olojoba described the passage of Pa Ejakpovi as a great loss, adding, “the joy is that he lived to old age and has such notable contributions to the growth of the society, like Dr. Nelson Ejakpovi as his children.”
