The governor of Bayelsa State Duoye Diri has revealed how the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye asked him not to give up on his mandate.
Governor Diri disclosed that Adeboye promised him that his mandate would be restored.
The governor stated this on Friday at the church ’s international headquarters along the Lagos -Ibadan expressway during the ‘Testimony Session ’ at the church ’s monthly meeting.
“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.
“During the process, I visited this church on the 11 the of December during the programme of the Great Turn-Around.
“After the service, 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 ’.
“The judicial processes continued until the 14 the of February about 24 hours to the swearing-in ceremony of the alleged winner. Brethren, a miracle was accomplished. The Supreme Court declared me the winner of that election.
“I have come to give Him ( God ) the glory and to return the glory to Him and to Him alone.
“I want to thank Daddy G. O . and all of you who stood with me in prayers.
“ Today, I am the governor of Bayelsa State,” Diri told the congregation.
It took the Supreme court to rule that Diri and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP duly won the Bayless governorship election after the Appeal Court had declared David Lyon, candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC winner of the poll
