On the eve of Peter Obi’s presidential campaign in Akwa Ibom, he visited Evangelist Uma Ukpai at his residence. The evangelist prayed for him saying this words:
Thank you, Lord, for making this night possible. Let the miracle start and every voice that speaks against him shall speak no more. Assign an angel to him that shall guide and guard him. That shall also protect him and fight for him in battle.
“On behalf of those who love him, I ask, do not allow any man born of a woman to stop him from emerging as our president. And his rule shall bring prosperity. We shall cease to be idiots. We shall cease to be slaves. We shall become a greatly honoured nation. Whoever you will use to make this dream possible employ that person tonight. Let that person become part of the campaign team.
When tomorrow he will be presented to the people of Akwa Ibom let there be peace. Bless him with good health, let him learn how to rest”
