Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has called on religious leaders of the different denominations in Nigeria to organise special prayer sessions for God’s intervention in the affairs of the country. Governor Okowa made the call on Tuesday when he played host to the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, (PFN) Bishop Wale Oke at the Government House, Asaba.

He noted that Nigeria as a nation needs prayers for God to positively turn things around for the overall good and development of the country, stressing that the myriads of problems confronting the nation required prayers for them to be surmounted.

According to the governor, the peace that we seek as a nation must come from God for Nigeria to achieve sustainable socio-economic growth and development.

He said “First, we must thank God for today. I want to thank people like you who had spent time praying for the country. I want to urge religious leaders in the country to continuously pray for the nation for God to positively turn things around for the country”.

While expressing hope that God would, through the intercession of religious leaders, grant the nation the much-needed peace and unity, the governor applauded the Church of Christ for praying for the success of his administration in the state.

Okowa, who acknowledged the prayerful role PFN played in his re-election, thanked them for truly being very supportive of his return to office. He stated out that his administration struggled to meet up with the challenges of governance in its first two years in office as there was no money at that time. He however expressed gratitude to God for providing resources after the initial challenges.

“We were struggling to meet up with the challenges of governance in our first two years in office as there was no money at that time, but we thank God for the resources that he had been providing for us since then,” Okowa added. He promised not to allow the politics of 2023 derail his development agenda for Deltans, pointing out that his giant strides in infrastructure and human capital development would be sustained till May 28, 2023.

“Deltans have given us a mandate and l will not allow the politics of 2023 to derail my developmental agenda for them. We shall sustain our infrastructural and human capital development till May 28, 2023. God leading us, we will not disappoint the people. I want to thank the PFN for the role they played in my re-election. The church was truly very supportive of my return for a second term in office”.

Earlier, Bishop Oke, who was in the state on Episcopal mission, lauded Governor Okowa for being a true Christian in politics. He said he was tremendously impressed with the great accomplishments of the governor in all sectors of the state’s economy, pointing out that his visit to the state had afforded him a unique opportunity to confirm what he had heard and seen on television about the governor’s transformational legacies in the state.
