Adeboye visits Hope Uzodimma, assures him of divine intervention over security challenges
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Imo governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma on Friday, May 27, received the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye at the Government House, Owerri.
Pastor Adeboye in his address to the governor revealed that the problem of Nigeria today is beyond human comprehension and assured that God’s intervention is real and inevitable.
He said his team and members have been fasting and praying for the restitution of the land for days but that God directed him to visit the places and lands across Nigeria where the forces of darkness were enveloping light, hence the visit to Imo for a prayer session.
