Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has condemned those who are allegedly instigating the army to take over power from President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor described the thought as wicked and those behind it as enemies of God and the country.
Okowa state this in Benin City, Edo State, as the end of a 7days convention tagged, “Too Faithful to Fail.”
Instead of having evil thoughts, he urged Nigerians to pray for the quick recovery of the president so that he can continue with his work for the nation.
“Pray for the quick recovery of the President so that he can continue with his work for the country to remain peaceful and united, some are praying for his death which is ungodly.” He said
He further urged the country to continue to pray for President Buhari and Nigeria so that we can come out of recession.
“It is because of the challenges we are facing in Delta State that I declared every May 29 a day of worship and praise, because we must pray for our leaders and country always. I am sure that most of you know that since 2016, Delta State has been a theatre of battle in the creeks. But I believed and trusted in God that he sent me and by God’s grace it has all stopped.
“Don’t blame Buhari or those in government for our problems because your prayers can change anything in this country. It can change the direction of the policy in this nation, it can change the recession we are in, but unfortunately, most times, we don’t know how to carry on as Christians.
“One thing I know about this country is that God is in charge and we are supposed to be praying for the health of the president, so if any politician is approaching the Army to come back then that person must be an enemy of God and an enemy of this country.
“When things go wrong in a nation like Nigeria, it is a test of the faith of Christians in the country because the way things are, only Christians can deliver the nation from where it is, through your prayers both in the church and in your homes. So, my appeal is that please do not end your day without calling on God to rest his hand upon this nation, Nigeria.”
