Spiritual Director of the Catholic Ministry, Rev Fr Chibuzo Emmanuel Obimma (Father Ebube Muonso) has described Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag-bearer for the 2021 Anambra governorship election Valentine Ozigbo, as a man under immense grace.
The cleric stated this at the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, on Friday, July 30, 2021, for the final day of its prayer programme themed “90 Nights Rain of Abundance and Prosperity” where parishioners prayed for Ozigbo’s success at the November 6 guber poll.
He commended Mr Ozigbo for always putting God first in his political journey, stressing he was on the right track.
He said, “The truth is that God’s hand is heavily on your life, and it is evident. You started well because you started with God.
“Just like Hezekiah changed God’s mind regarding the number of years he had on earth, your good deeds and pure heart has convinced Heaven to favour you.
“Before the PDP primary election, Ozigbo joined us in prayer, and today, he is here as the PDP flag-bearer. He is a man of grace. He is on the right track, and God orders his steps.
“You have always given reverence to God’s altar, and the Lord God Almighty will guide you until you eventually attain victory. “
In his address at the service, Mr Ozigbo expressed gratitude to God and the ministry’s members for their prayers and also requested for prayers and support to ensure his victory at the main election.
“I am a child of grace, and I am grateful to God for delivering me at the primary election. Our success at the primary is a fulfilment of your prayers during my past visits to the Adoration Ground,” Ozigbo, a multiple award-winning global CEO, said.
“All my life, God has been faithful and has blessed me beyond measure, and I want to use Anambra State to show my gratitude for all the beautiful things the Lord has done for me.
“My promise to you in front of this altar is that Anambra will blossom. I will make all of you proud. I need your prayers and support so that our vision to transform Anambra will become a reality,” Ozigbo concluded.
In a moving display of support, several congregants touched by Ozigbo’s story raised millions to support Ozigbo’s initial donation to assist the church building project. The gesture was symbolic, as Mr Ozigbo had not met any of the donors prior to the service.
Ozigbo was accompanied to the service by his wife, Mrs Ojiugo Ozigbo; Rt Hon Eucharia Azodo, the Director of Women and Welfare in the VCO Campaign Organisation; Chief Tony Offiah, the Director of Finance in the VCO Campaign Organisation; Gerry Ozigbo, Samson Ozigbo and several other members of our the VCO Campaign Organisation.
Valentine Ozigbo is the immediate past President and Group CEO of Transcorp Plc. He emerged as the PDP flag-bearer for the Anambra State guber election after polling the majority of the votes at the party’s primary election held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at the Prof Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka.
He received his certificate of return from the National Working Committee on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, after his victory was certified by the party’s National Working Committee.
