The governors of Benue State, Mr. Samuel Ortom and his Akwa Ibom counterpart, Mr. Emmanuel Udom have testified how God saw them through the 2019 polls
The duo gave the testimony at the April 2019 holy ghost night of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. telling the large gathering that God was the one who gave them victory at the polls.
Ortom said when he first contested the elections in 2015 he consulted with the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye who prayed for him thus gaining enough confidence to go for the elections. He said he won because God was right there with him throughout the process.
He however confessed that the 2019 elections did not come easy. He said, “at a point I was despondent and did not want to contest in the elections. I was really not confident. But during my devotion one morning the Lord encouraged me. Shortly after Pastor Adeboye called me and encouraged me. That was what gave me the courage to contest in the elections. As God would have it, the Lord gave us victory.”
On his own part, Ortom said he won the Akwa Ibom elections through the intervention of God. He said, “Thine oh Lord is thy greatness and power. People say you can’t win elections by prayers. But I want to say we were able to win the elections through prayers. God answers prayers and he answered us when we called him” he said.
