GRATITUDE IS NOT SYNONYMOUS WITH SERVITUDE – CHIEF BARR ADOKIYE AMIESIMAKA

…Cautions against individual selfish and parochial interest

Okrika Local Government Area was alive with celebration as they rolled out their drums in praise and thanksgiving, welcoming the SIMplified Movement family to Community Secondary School, Ibaka Town, Okrika, in honor of the electoral and Supreme Court victory of His Excellency Sir Siminalayi Fubara, GSSRS, the Executive Governor and Political Leader of Rivers State.

The significant impact of this thanksgiving event in our state cannot be overstated, as peace now reigns in Rivers State following Sir Siminalayi Fubara’s election and subsequent victory at the Supreme Court. It’s an acknowledgment of God’s mercy, faithfulness, and involvement in the affairs of Rivers state.

In his address, the Chairman of the occasion, Chief Barr Adokiye Amiesimaka, emphasized the need for selfless service and collective interest over personal gain, stating, “Gratitude is not synonymous with servitude.

Furthermore, he acknowledged the importance of destiny helpers in fulfilling others’ dreams, cautioning against playing God when assisting others.
