Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has urged religious leaders to pray for the upliftment of Nigeria, saying that their prayers will be impactful on the people.
The governor made the comment on Friday, October 18 when prominent preacher, Evangelist Rabbi Schneider paid him a courtesy visit in Asaba, the Delta state capital.
Governor Okowa stated that crusades will win more souls for Christ and prayers will be offered for our country and the state.
“Prayers of our religious leaders will uplift the country and impact positively on the life of our people in the state.
“When Christian leaders pay us visit, we believe that the prayers will uplift the state and the nation because, the more we pray as a nation, the more we connect with God and find solutions to the challenges facing us,” the governor said.
“With prayers, God will turn things around for the nation and as a state, we put our trust in God,” the governor added.
Speaking earlier, Evangelist Schneider told the governor that he and members of his team were in the state for the Ika Wonderland Crusade.
Meanwhile, Governor Okowa has commiserated with his Anambra counterpart, Mr. Willie Obiano and Onitsha residents over the tragic fire incident that affected the commercial city recently.
He extended his sympathy to people affected but frowned at some people who stoned fire-fighters from Asaba who came to rescue the situation.
