Clerics drawn from different parts of Edo State have thrown their weight behind the re-election bid of Governor Godwin Obaseki on account of the governor’s sterling performance in infrastructure, education, healthcare, among other sectors of the state.
The clerics, who gathered in their large numbers in Benin City, during a prayer session for peace in Edo State, noted that the governor has performed credibly well in his first term in office and deserves a second term to consolidate on his numerous impactful projects in the state.
Speaking at the prayer session, Chaplain of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Egbenusi Osazee, who drew his sermon from Psalm 61, admonished Christians to pray for Edo State and the governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, who no doubt, has demonstrated good leadership qualities and deserves to be supported in his second term bid.
He noted, “There is no power but of God; power is ordained by God. We still have some months before a new administration, so the person that God has put there now is His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki. We owe him a responsibility to pray for him and ensure he comes back to power”
According to Egbenusi, “Man did not make power, whether spiritual or civil. There is no power that is ordained except by God; if you like you say the person is tyrant or novice. The powers that be are ordained by God.”
The clergy added, “It is God that gives power. So it is high time we fought those fueling crises in the state instead of fighting against the government that God has ordained. We all owe the responsibility of praying for Governor Godwin Obaseki that God has ordained”
Pastor at the New Covenant Gospel Church, His Glory, Theodora Abiola Omobude, urged Christians to have trust in God, believing that no matter the rage of the fire, God will always put it off.
