The traditional ruler of Effurun Otor Kingdom HRM King Duku II, has been decorated a General in Mission for Africa Chaplaincy Corps and also awarded an honorary doctorate degree by the International Christian Organization at his palace at Effurun-Otor, Delta State over the weekend.
In his speech, a member of the group, Rev. Dr. Chaplain General Paul Monday Chom, explained that the first Christian king in Effurun Otor kingdom was being honoured due to his contributions to the growth of Christianity.
General Chom who asserted that denomination of churches means nothing to the group, declared that Jesus Christ is the leader of the group, just as he urged traditional rulers to have chaplaincy in their palaces.
Earlier in his address, Chaplain Major-General, Dr. Ejenevi Michael Ekeke, explained that the group is an international paramilitary inter-denominational Christian organization founded in 2005 with branches all over the world and that it is categorized into regular, executive and royal chaplains and that the group is dedicated in service to God and humanity.
“It is attached to Mark Theological Seminary Ministry, with headquarters in Mississippi, U.S.A. It is a voluntary service organisation and fellowship of patriotic Christian citizens.We reach out and help alleviate human suffering and spiritual deficiencies whenever there is a need,” he added.
In his response, the traditional ruler expressed gratitude to God and appreciation to the group for the decoration and award, saying that it was an honour that will spur him to doing more for Christianity and mankind.
High points of the event were the decoration of the traditional ruler as a general in the group and award of an honorary doctorate degree and the presentation of cash to women by HRM King Duku II.
