The Ebonyi State Governor, Engr David Nweze Umahi, has stressed that God is the driving force behind every achievement that his administration has, so far, made within the State. He made this known during the Night of Testimony organised by the Christ the Redeemer’s Friends International (CRFI) in Abakaliki, the State capital, on Friday.
Speaking at the event, Governor Umahi, who was the chief testifier of the day, chronicled how his covenant with God had led him to build worship centres for God both in his home town and in the State capital.
The Governor equally expressed his sympathy for his antagonists noting that they did not understand that he is a child of God.
“I pity those undermining, betraying and plotting against me not knowing that I am a sacrifice for God.
“Those in this group are not fighting against me but God who has decided to adopt me as his special child.”
He stated that he never fights or holds grudges against anybody.
“My act of forgiveness is one of the sources of my success and prosperity but those who want to undermine me neither succeed or progress in life.” He added.
Besides the State Governor and the wife, Chief Mrs. Rachael U. Umahi, the event also had in attendance Mrs. Nnenna Ethel Igwe, wife of the Deputy Governor, Pst. General Abel Obi Umahi, Executive Secretary, CRFI National, members of the State Executive Council, Service Chiefs, Pst. E. A. Daramola, AGO in charge of RCCG SE/SS District, Prof Sunday Adeeoye, Bishops and leaders of various churches in Ebonyi State, members of Ebonyi Traditional Rulers Council, Leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Capitals of Industries and business outlets.
