(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) – Friends, relations and other associates of Dr. Jude Nwoka joined him on Sunday to thank God for deliverance from six weeks health challenge and untimely death, as well as two career lifting that followed in quick succession.
Speaking at a thanksgiving service, Dr. Jude Nwoka, who is the Head of Management Department at Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt, recalled that his health had, at the time deteriorated to the point that, some had written him off for dead, but for the timely intervention of God, which gave him the opportunity to see his promotion to the next level of Associate Professor and elevation to the rank of Fellow of the Nigerian Institute of Management.
Thanking his students for honouring his invitation to the thanksgiving and for always being supportive, the Associate Professor maintained that, contrary to the claim that teachers’ rewards are in heaven, that he is receiving his own rewards here on earth.
He thanked Pastor Chris, Head Pastor of Christ Inheritance International Christian Centre, near Elakahia, on the East West road, for his protective role, pledging to remain in the church, because, according to him, God has been using the pastor to help him overcome the challenges of life.
Earlier in his message, Pastor Chris advised worshippers to form the habit of praising God, just like David in the Bible, adding that it takes the help of God for any man to
Overcome the challenges of life and go ahead to fulfill destiny.
The thanksgiving was attended by people from all walks of life.
