Rt Hon Chinedum Orji: An Embodiment of Godliness, Gratitude and Good Conscience
A popular aphorism has it that “you can take the man out of the woods, but you can’t take the woods out of the man.”
Though Chinedum Orji may have given Abia house of Assembly the befitting look, and even still, enjoys the goodwill of Abia people, he constantly acknowledges God and seeks his face in all that he does, and will never trade His place for anything in the world.
His Godly principles, character and tenets remains the light that guides his path, and in line with his gratitude culture, he acknowledges with every sense of humility the fact that except the Lord builds a house, the labourers make fools of themselves.
According to Paul Washer, “the mark of a man of God is God upon the man.” So, when the ways of a man pleases God, he exalts him, projects him before kings and makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
For Rt Hon Chinedum Orji, he keeps no enemies, neither will he inherit one. He is at peace with all men and this peace gets renewed after every fellowship with his maker.
For this, he delights in the law of the Lord on which he meditates day and night, and like a tree planted by the riverside, he yields fruits at the appointed time. For His name sake, he does not wither, but all he does prospers.
There are lots of things to be grateful for—the gift of life; of witnessing another birth anniversary, of victory, and the opportunity granted him to passionately serve humanity.
If for a moment you wonder why Chinedum Orji would at all times seek solitude in the fortress of his maker, then I’ll leave you with the words of Edward McKendree which says: “Prayer makes a godly man, and puts within him the mind of Christ, the mind of humility, of self-surrender, of empathy and of selfless service.”
Alas, not only do we have a speaker that is passionate about ensuring the sustainability of peace, economic growth and entrepreneurial development, we have for ourselves a god-fearing youths favourable leader who in the coming days will predicate his decisions on the tenets of empathy, good conscience and morality.
