A member representing Kachia Constituency in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Mr. Tanimu Musa on Sunday 13th October, 2019 organized a thanks giving service to appreciate God for choosing him to be part of sixth assembly in the state.
Speaking during the thanks giving service, the former resident Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Revelation Tower Sabon Tasha, Pastor Timothy Olaniyan called on people in the public offices, to imbibe the attitude of replicating what God is doing in their lives by coming back to give thanks to him as well as using their positions to serve God .
“Whatever God gives to a man, he or she has a specific time to be there, it is only when he uses that thing to serve God that what God has done to him becomes meaningful to the society and God will do more to that person’s life,” he stated.
In his preaching, the pastor emphasised the need for mankind to always thank God.
According to him, whatever you are today, it is God that gives you the grace to be that thing, as such God should be appreciated at all times.
The pastor who drew his preaching from the book of Psalm 103:1-5 said that as human beings there are several reasons to thank God, these include his benefits, his creations, even the wisdom he gave to mankind to manufacture different things among others.
The clergy who described Mr. Tanimu Musa as his special son, said his ambition to become a politician started like a dream when he first told them his attention in the church, which is now a reality hence the reason for him to thank God.
Earlier, the Deputy Governor, Dr. Hadiza Sabuwa Balarabe also described Mr. Tanimu as a good man even though he was not from the ruling party.
She also stressed the need for people to also thank God for all the good things he had been doing regardless of their religious.
She however enjoined every one present at the service to join mr. Tanimu to appreciated God for his good work over his life.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen shortly after the thanks giving service, Mr. Tanimu Musa emphasised the need for people to always come back to appreciate God whenever He does something good to them.
His word “I am here to thank God for choosing me out of so many candidates that showed interest but he choose me to be the member of the House of Assembly and secondly, two days after my inauguration to office, God added another blessing to my family by blessing me with a son and I named him Shagali after my able Speaker, Alhaji Aminu Abdullahi Shagali”
According to him, just like the story of the ten blind men in the Bible who Jesus healed but only one returned back to him to thank him, he had also returned back to tell God thank you.
Mr. Musa who is also the chairman House Community on Information, also appreciated the people of his constituency for electing him into the House while assuring them of his effective representation in the Assembly.
The Thanksgiving Service, which was held at the Redeemed Christian Church, Revelation Towers, Sabon Tasha, has dignitaries to include, the Kaduna state Chairman of the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) Mr. Hassan Hyet, the majority Leader of the House, Alhaji Mohammer Inuwa who represented the speaker, members representing Kajuru and Sanga constituencies, Mr. Samuel Uba Kato and Mrs Comfort Amwe respectively, among others.
