The Executive Assistant to the Delta State governor on Religious Matters, Bishop Greatman Nmalagu, has described the victory of Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa at the State Electoral Tribunal as victory for all Deltans.
Bishop Nmalagu stated this in his office in Asaba recently when he granted audience to some journalists.
According to him “The victory was for the good people of Delta state, as it is the will of God that Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa should be the governor of Delta state”.
Bishop Nmalagu making reference to the scripture, compared the present situation in the state to that of David, who was favoured by God to lead the people of Israel, as God favour is upon Okowa.
On the response of the opposition, by going to the appeal court, he said going to the appeal will be worst for the opposition, as the people of Delta massively voted for Okowa, because of God’s grace and anointing on him, and ,that same God will see him victorious at the appeal court.
“The same God that made him to win the election, the same God that made him to win the primaries, the same God that saw him trough at the tribunal, that same God will see him through”. He said.
He therefore called on the opposition to unite with the present government to move the state forward, if they have any genuine intention for the state.
The aide to the governor also used the occasion to call on all religious leaders in the state to continue to pray for the state, and the governor for God continuous guidance and wisdom, for it is only the will of God, he is the Governor today.
“No government will be, except God says so”, he concluded.
In a related development, Bishop Greatman Nmalagu, the aide to the state governor on Religious Matters, has called on Deltans going for the 2015 Pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Israel to use the opportunity to pray for the state.
The aide to the governor made the statement on Wednesday, 4/11/2015 in Asaba during the briefing organised by the Christian Welfare Board to educate the intending pilgrims before they embark on the journey.
Bishop Nmalagu reminded the intending pilgrims to see the journey to the holy land as a journey for a spiritual exercise for spiritual purposes and for fervent prayers, as only this can make them undergo a successful pilgrimage.
Speaking further, he called on all Deltans going for the 2015 pilgrimage to pray specially for the state and the governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
According to him, “The state needs your prayers, because it is only prayers that the government, under Dr. Okowa can be able to achieve the set target for the state”.
He therefore called on them to make use of all they have to see that the confidence the government imposes on them as ambassadors of the state will not be defeated.
