The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Engr Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, on Sunday offered an automatic employment to a member of Presbyter of Trinity Methodist Church, Umuegwu Afugiri Umuahia, Mrs Enyiocha Grace Ifeoma.
The Speaker was in the Church for the Child Dedication & Thanksgiving Service of little Miss Princess Chikaima Ihedioha, daughter of Prince & Mrs Emeka Ihedioha.
Fortune came the way of the pregnant Mrs Enyiocha Grace Ifeoma, the lead singer of the congregation when the Speaker noticed the zeal which she demonstrated during singing.
According to the Speaker, he watched keenly with amazement how Mrs Enyiocha, even though heavily pregnant sang melodiously with her whole being to the glory of God.
Moved by her dedication to service despite her condition, the Speaker asked what she was doing for a living.
In response, Mrs. Enyiocha said she is an applicant, having studied Accounting and passed through her mandatory the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
The church went into jubilation when the Speaker announced the offer of a job to her and requested Prince Emeka Ihedioha to proceed later to his office with her documents for processing.
The Speaker while thanking God for His blessings upon the life of Prince & Mrs Emeka Ihedioha said children are gifts from God, adding that it’s a big testimony to the glory of God that a woman conceives, goes through the nine months journey of pregnancy and delivers safely.
The Speaker further said he was very happy to worship in the church for the first time and promised to support them whenever the need arises.
Rev Felix Ucheze, the Presbyter of Trinity Methodist Church, Umuegwu Afugiri while welcoming the Speaker, expressed gratitude, urging him to continue with the good works he has always been known for and asked God to bless him in all his endeavours.
