Chidoka gets cleric’s backing for the forthcoming Anambra election.
Some clerics in Anambra State have backed the flag bearer of United Progressive Party (UPP), Osita chidoka, for the upcoming November 18 gubernatorial election.
Naija News gathered that the clerics interceding for Chidoka are the Spiritual Director of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma, an Anglican priest, Ven. Stanley Awuzie, the Anglican Bishop of the Diocese on the Niger, Rt. Rev Owen Dozie Nwokolo, Bishop of Niger West Diocese, Aguleri, Rt. Rev. Johnson Ekwe and the Methodist Bishop of Onitsha, Rt. Rev. Biereonwu Onuagha.
Punch reports that Chidoka was at the St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, Egbema, Ozubulu, where Ven. Awuzie laid hands on him as a symbol of blessing and endorsement.
Awuzie urged Chidoka to remain steadfast in his belief in God and love for humanity.
The cleric asked God to give the governorship aspirant the divine direction, energy and the right alliances to succeed and prayed that Anambra should have a hitch-free election.
Chidoka said he had been praying not only for his victory at the election but also for the good of Anambra State.
“My mission is a product of intense prayers to God and consultations with our people. Prayers and faith in God are at the root of all we do. Some people trust in the arm of flesh, others in horses and chariots, but we trust in the name of the Lord, our God,” he said.
It was learnt that the UPP National Chairman, Chief Chekwas Okorie; Chidoka’s running mate, Chief Marcel Okeke were among those who attended the prayer session.
