The Presiding Pastor of Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel Church) Aba Headquarters, Pastor Emmanuel Olajide has disclosed that the strong faith of the Abia Governor-Elect, Dr. Alex Otti was the major factor in his governorship victory at the polls.
Preaching during a Church service earlier today at the Church Headquarters at Osisioma, Pastor Olajide disclosed that Otti’s Faith which was backed by hard work was the reason his third attempt as a governorship candidate yielded the long expected result, and enjoined congregants at the service to always have faith in the Lord, but ensure that such faith is followed up with hard work.
According to Pastor Olajide “What makes Faith a reality is hard work. With hard work, the expectation of the righteous cannot be cut short, because, If you don’t give up, what’s harrassing you will give up”
Speaking, the visibly elated Abia Governor-Elect, Dr. Alex Otti while making references to the Bible, amid ovation-induced interuptions from the excited congregation, disclosed that his victory at the polls was revealed to Pastor Olajide and other Men of God, and insisted that the Glory of his victory belongs only to God and cannot be shared with any man.
With Pastor Olajide’s permission, Dr. Otti read out a text message which the man of God sent to him on the eve of the election which reads “In the name of Jesus, tomorrow is your day, God will hand over Abia into ur hand. This seat is for you. God at his power will put you on the seat, in Jesus name.
Congratulations ahead. Shalom”
