100 Bishops, other Christian clerics Announce 3-day prayer at Unity Fountain for Governor Yahaya Bello
No fewer than 100 Christian clergy, chiefly Bishops, have stated their intention to hold a three-day prayer and fasting event in support of Governor Yahaya Bello’s election as president in 2023.
The clergy are recruited from each state of the nation and the Federal Capital Territory, according to a statement issued by the convener, Bishop Jonathan Praise, on Tuesday in Abuja.
He added that approximately 1,000 religious leaders, along with their pastors, are expected at the Unity Fountain Abuja, the location of the prayers.
The objective of their gathering, according to Bishop Jonathan, is to provide a spiritual shield and support for Governor Bello, whom he describes as “God’s anointed candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.”
He explained that, like David in the Bible, Governor Bello is a man after God’s heart who must be protected at all costs in order to fulfill his mission.
Recalling Bello’s rise to governorship, the Bishop said it was not by chance, but by fate, and that he would once again surprise naysayers at the polls.
“There is no ruler in the Bible who was the apple of God’s eye like David. God’s heart had a special affinity for the man whom the Lord subsequently defined as “a man after my heart, who will do all my will” (Acts 13:33) “According to Bishop Jonathan.
“David was not without flaws. In many respects, he failed and sinned. So, why did God lavishly adore and bless him? He was chosen by God. Our David is Yahaya Bello. He embodies all of his characteristics.
“Bello, like David, is a young man who is driven, dedicated, charismatic, passionate, empathetic, and kind. Give it a name. He is a God-fearing man “..
Bishop Jonathan stated that, aside from the spiritual aspects revealed to him and other clerics, Bello excelled other so-called aspirants.
He stated that the governor’s natural leadership characteristics, ideas, and tenacity are just what Nigeria needs at this vital juncture.
“Even if we ignore the spiritual side and concentrate solely on the physical, Governor Bello is unrivaled. He is a young man who has shown promise.
