Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state Friday insisted that Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki of Edo state would go back for second tenure.
He said that his works and calling would see him through and encouraged him not to be jittery even as he acknowledged that power belongs to God.
Umahi made the statement when he received wives of Southern Governor who were in the state for a two-day meeting.
He said, “Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will do, it is God that has the final say. I can assure you, you know as an apostle of the most high God, I also prophesy. Because of the good work your husband is doing for the people of Edo state, no man can unseat him. I make this statement so that the glory of God will become larger. It
happened here in Ebonyi, I have a testimony of what God can do.
“Even in our NEC meeting, when Obaseki speaks, you see economics as a
man that came from private sector background. So, we can’t wish
that away and congratulations to you in advance and to all of us. You know the governors; we have so many elections. First is the primary, second one is the poll, then the third one is the tribunal.
Then another one is the appeal and then the election of the elections
is the supreme court.
“So, it is not an easy thing and if the hand of God is not upon you,
you can’t scale through all these hurdles. And so, it is God who has
brought all of us to leadership and I say double congratulations to all of us.”
