Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma has expressed confidence that God will expose the masterminds of insecurity in the state, if the people remain fervent in their prayers.
The governor urged the Church to be steadfast in prayers as the instruments of war used by the enemies to kill and destroy cannot be compared with the strength of God who protects His people in times of difficulties.
The governor spoke on Friday in Owerri on the occasion of the second edition of the annual ‘Imo Prays’ as the special guest.
The event had the theme, “At the name of Jesus,” for the 2022 edition.
Governor Uzodimma prayed God to “arrest and expose all those involved in the dastardly act no matter who they are and where they are.”
He recalled that in the 2021 prayer session tagged “Imo Prays”, most of the hoodlums who burnt and released criminal inmates at the Owerri Correctional Centre, were arrested and hoped that “this year’s session will yield a better result.”
He said the Church is a partner in the search for solution to problems and challenges of the society, noting that as a body known for peace-making, the children of God have always been used to establish peace in Imo State.
The prayer session had in attendance all the bishops serving under the Owerri Ecclesiastical Province of the Anglican Church headed by Most Rev (Dr.) David Onuoha who is also the Bishop of Okigwe South Diocese.
Prayers were offered for Nigeria, Imo State, families among others, in line with the theme the Bible reading drawn from Philippians Chapter 2:10.
The high point of the session was a prayer for Governor Uzodimma by all the people in attendance, for God’s wisdom to deal with the huge challenges that come with governance.
