WARRI — AUTHORITIES of Warri South Local Government Council have named a four-kilometre-road after the National President of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor, describing him as a great ambassador of Warri.
In a brief remark before unveiling two sign-posts of the road, Transition Committee Chairman of Warri South Local Government, Dr. Augustine Uroye, noted that the formal unveiling in honour of the CAN President was the first in the history of the local government.
According to him, Pastor Oritsejafor has contributed immensely to the development and positive projection of Warri both within and outside the country.
Pastor Oritsejafor, who was flanked by his wife, Pastor Hellen Oritsejafor, stated that he felt elated and excited, stressing that a man could not be said to have achieved anything until his people honoured him.
According to the former Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria President, even Jesus Christ could not do many miracles in his own town because the Jews had no value for him.
An emotional Pastor Oritsejafor, who prayed for continuous peace in Warri, declared that with the honour done him, every good thing that left Warri would return.
The four-kilometre-road, which runs from the Police Barrack Junction axis of the popular Warri-Sapele Road terminates at the Mabiaku road in Warri GRA.
