The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN I), Ikpoba-Okha, and the rest of Ikpoba-Okha Christian community, has said they are solidly behind the Candidacies of Asue Ighodalo and Osarodion Ogie, the Edo State governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that their victory is sure at the poll.

The Christian community said it has resolved to support the duo considering the very robust and productive relationship it has with Osarodion Ogie and the credibility the PDP deputy governorship candidate has built over the years.

Speaking further, the Christian body commended the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Chairman, Dr. Eric Osayande, for his accomplishments, noting that his works guarantees sweet victory for the local government area in the forthcoming poll.

“We all know the pedigree of Osarodion Ogie, he is a man of few words, but action, intelligent man, a man of capacity; I am very happy with the involvement of the church in this election, we will ensure that our impact is felt greatly as the election approaches”.

“Gone are the days when the church stayed away from politics, we are not living it for anybody now, if it comes to prayer, we will pray, if it comes to counsel, we will counsel, we will not hesitate to criticise political office holders who do wrongly, and commend those who do well”.

“We are happy with Council Chairman today because of his excellent report, I have discovered that Osayande is a man of his words, that is why I have gone close to him”, noted the Fellowship’s Director of Policy and Governance, Apst. Elvis Agbonayinma.

The gathering of some members of the Christian body in Ikpoba-Okha, had more than two hundred (200) Christians, drawn from various Churches in the LGA, gathered at the Cornerstone Deliverance Ministry Int’l, Isiuwa Street, Off Eweka Road, Benin City, to receive the deputy governorship candidate.

Represented by the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Chairman, who reeled out the sterling qualities of Osarodion Ogie.

Osayande noted that Osarodion Ogie has been a major financier of the Christian community, having built Churches, sponsored Church programmes, the Council Chairman revealed that Osarodion Ogie consistently feeds the poor and provides for the needy, Christ’s doctrines captured in Proverbs 22:9, the generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

Osayande charged the Church not to be ashamed to demand for power, noting that the next governor and deputy governor of Edo State must be persons with well-established Christian background, a requirement which Asue Ighodalo and Osarodion Ogie satisfactorily meets.

“In 2024, 2027, we must take over power, we must work very hard to occupy the political space, provided the person is from the house of God”.

Osayande, while speaking, promised to empower 250 women in PFN I and additional 250 women in PFN II, the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Chairman also revealed his planned empowerment for farmers, who particularly requested for the Chairman’s assistance.

“Osarodion Ogie is somebody whose doors opens every 5am, till the next day, anybody can come in; a detribalized and astute public servant who believes in the ideals of equity, justice and fairness”, Osayande added.

Immediate past Chairman of EDSOGPADEC, Pst. Kennedy Osifo, who was also on the SSG’s entourage, noted that with Asue Ighodalo and Osarodion Ogie, light has come to Edo.
