Benue state Governor Samuel Ortom has revealed how the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, prayed fo helped and helped him through the election period.
Ortom disclosed this at the Redemption Camp of the Redeemed Christian Church of God during the church’s April Holy Ghost Service, Premium Times reports.
The Benue governor who stood up during the programme to give a testimony said that Pastor Adeboye prayed for him several times when he felt depressed and needed divine intervention.
He said: “When I wanted to contest for the 2015 election, I came to the Redemption Camp to pray and I went to Daddy and Mummy G.O. They prayed for me and despite all the challenges that accompanied the race, I became the governor and I was sworn in.
“In 2017, challenges came over me and I said I was not going to contest again in 2019, let me remain a one-term governor. The following day during my devotion, God asked me why I had decided to be a lone ranger. He assured me He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega.
“I picked up the courage, came to the altar and Daddy G. O. again. He prayed for me.
“But so many challenges came as we went through the race and there was this particular day before the election that Daddy GO called me when I was completely depressed and did not know what to do.
“After the prayer, we were encouraged again and went through the race. Again, despite all the challenges, God saw me through and I was elected the Governor of Benue state again. Praise be to the Lord.”
