Governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel, has made some revelations about the 2019 general election.
Emmanuel stated that he wrestled not against humans but “powers and principalities”, who were desperate for power.
The Governor spoke on Friday, at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, during a thanksgiving event.
His words: “This battle wasn’t about the flesh. We were not wrestling against the flesh but powers and principalities but God gave us victory.”
“God used this victory to show that His redemption on the cross was not in vain. God used this victory to defend the church…his name.
“At a point, it seemed as if we were almost overwhelmed but God gave us victory. God used the Akwa-Ibom people to show his victory. I have never seen where the people showed love like they did for our governments.
“Our pledge is that we will continue to serve you God almighty, we will not place your interest above the interest of the common man.
“Every strength, might, wisdom, power that God has given us, we will deploy them to work for the state. I want to thank God for not putting us to shame. God has given life to Akwa Ibom state.
“This is a new beginning for the state. No man shall be able to stop what God has destined for Akwa Ibom state. No man can and no strength can cover Emmanuel. I subdue any altar, man, force against Akwa Ibom state.”
He thanked all those who played various roles in his emergence and that his administration would continue to serve both God and the people with strength and vigour.
Also speaking at the event, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, said Nigerians are waiting for God’s ultimate victory on the presidential election.
He lamented that the entire Niger Delta was taken over by the military but God was on the side of the people and delivered the state and the region.
