Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta insisted that last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly election was compromised, adding that the outcome was not the will of God.
Okowa, was the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Vice-Presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election won by Bola Tinubu of All Progressives Congress, APC.
But speaking at a meeting with members of the Isoko Church Leaders Council held at God’s Fountain of Life Mission, Oleh, Isoko South Local Government Area of the state on Friday, Okowa said the outcome of the poll was not the will of God.
The Delta State Governor who was seeking support for the governorship candidate of PDP in March 11 election, Mr Sheriff Oborevwori claimed that the Church anticipated the manipulation of the election and prayed against it.
“Obviously, this is not the will of God. It is not the will of God that the Chapel in Aso Rock will be closed for four years as a result of the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“This is the time for us to truly pray. It is a time for me to encourage the Church of Christ to continue to pray.
“I believe that this is the time for us to dwell in the light of God so that His will will be done in our state and in Nigeria.
“This is the time for us to rise up in faith and not time to mourn. The church must be prayerful, cautious and have to think from inside.
“It is my prayer that the chapel in Government House, Asaba, will remain to the glory of God,” the governor said.
