The Bayelsa State Governor, Duoye Diri, has testified that the prayer of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, helped him win the governorship election despite losing out at first.
Governor Diri said this during the ‘Testimony Session’ at the church’s monthly meeting held at the RCCG international headquarters along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
He said, “I contested in the governorship election in Bayelsa State in November 2019 and thereafter I was alleged to have lost the election. I promptly rejected those results and continued with the judicial process in Nigeria.”
He explained that during the process, he visited the church on the 11th of December during the programme themed, "Great Turn Around," and after the service, he went to see the man of God.
Diri said, "I went to see Daddy G.O. He prayed for me and thereafter, he said, ‘It is well. Go and when you receive it, come back to the church.”
He added that "The judicial processes continued until the 14th of February about 24 hours to the swearing-in ceremony of the alleged winner."
The elated governor, who noted that he was there to give glory to God, said a miracle was accomplished as the Supreme Court declared him the winner of that election.
He expressed gratitude to Pastor Adeboye and all members who prayed with him. “Today, I am the Governor of Bayelsa State,” Diri told the congregation.
