The Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has asked God Almighty to empower and guide the decisions of leaders including and legislators in the State.
This is even as he handed over all government offices in the State to God in prayer and for direction.
Obaseki made the supplication to God during a solemn Assembly at the Government House Chapel in Benin City where prayers of peace for the Country and Edo State were offered by believes in Christ.
The six-day prayer programme organised by his wife, Mrs. Betsy Obaseki, was rounded off on Sunday.
During the marathon prayer, the Governor dedicated his administration to God Almighty and assured that God will heal Nigeria and Edo State from all forms of social vices and political backwardness that hinder development.
“I rededicate all government offices to you. Heavenly Father, you have empowered legislators and the governor to make laws that affect our lives today. I pray for our state legislatures. God, give them wisdom and guide their decisions and make them always love thee first”.
Continuing, Obaseki said: “The decision I make as the Executive Governor of Edo affects the lives of millions of people home and abroad. Therefore, I pray that you strengthen me, give me wisdom and grace; let me speak and act with benevolence and act with sincerity in all situations”, he prayed.
In her remarks, Mrs. Besty Obaseki, said that the prayer session was a directive from God, that they should gather and pray for the development of Edo.
She revealed that what God did in Edo State was for the upliftment of the nation’s politics, as the state is critical for the development of Nigeria.
Mrs. Obaseki also urge Edo people to continue to pray for leaders across the globe.
