Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has charged the Christian communities in the country to continue to pray for God’s intervention in the present challenges confronting the country.
Governor Okowa gave the charge when he received Prophet Isa El-Buba of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria PFN, and members of his entourage on a courtesy visit at Government House, Asaba.
Governor Okowa disclosed that the problems hindering sustainable socio-economic growth and development of the country were complex, stating that it was only God that would help the Nation get over the problems.
Governor Okowa while noting that the State, in time past, went through turbulent times, affirmed that it was God that brought relative peace to the state, and reminded Christians of the need to work as a family in seeking God’s face in the affairs of the Nation.
He attributed the success of his administration to God’s divine providence and favour, adding that the state would continue to put God first in all things.
Governor Okowa lauded Prophet El-Buba for his move to encourage and mobilise Christians in Nigeria to stand for Christ, urging him not to relent in being a true ambassador of the body of Christ.
Earlier, Prophet Isa El-Buba disclosed that he was in Asaba to pray for the state and the country at large, emphasising that the initiative for a better Nigeria was to enthrone a Government in the country that would stand for all.
Prophet El-Buba called on believers in the country to join the crusade irrespective of their denominations.
He commended the Southern Nigerian Governors Forum for issuing a communique aimed at addressing major problems confronting the nation and enjoined Nigerians to eject any political party that would bring more sufferings on the masses.
Prophet El-Buba congratulated Governor Okowa for his inspiring developmental efforts in the state and sued for his support in achieving the cardinal goal of the initiative for a better Nigeria.
