“As a people and as a party, there is no doubt that we have been working hard these three and half years to deliver democratic dividends to our people.

“It is significant that we come to the presence of God today to seek Him.

“It is going to be the battle of the spirits and our God will prevail; our opponents that are relying on small gods will fail.

“Opponents will come with all sorts of rumours but we will need to work hard to ensure that we deliver all the candidates of our party.”

The governor warned the party members against casting aspersion on others during campaign and urged them to tell the electorate what the party had achieved in the state and solicit their votes.

“We should think about PDP, realising that we are one family and once we have that in mind, we will excel,” the governor added.
In a sermon, Ven. Charles Osemenem, who spoke on the theme, “When God desires,” said that all things happened for a reason and that all glory must go to God.

“Always pray for the grace of God because when God decides, no one can stop it,” he said.
