The Mayor of Infant Jesus area in Asaba, the Delta state capital, Sir Ben Agazuma has urged all members of the “Tony Obuh (The Chosen One) 2015 Governorship Support Group” to remain steadfast in their determination to rally round Sir Anthony Chuks Obuh ahead of the governorship polls in he state.
Agazuma stated this during a thanksgiving service in honour of Sir Obuh at the Guardian Angels Police Catholic Chapel of the Nigeria Police Force Catholic Chaplaincy, Delta state Police Command Headquarters, Okpanam road, Asaba on Sunday, October 05, 2015.
He however enjoined other aspirants and their supporters to desist from campaign of calumny and rather take a cue from Obuh who has carefully reeled out his manifesto to Deltans during his state wide consultation with the people of the state.
He pointed out that the zeal to serve Deltans, as enunciated by Obuh has set him above other aspirants, adding that Obuh’s pedigree and desire to further transform Delta state have been applauded by Deltans at home and in the Diaspora who have called on him to contest in the 2015 Delta state governorship elections.
Also, during the service which witnessed a large turn-out of Deltans and other residents, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. (ASP) Pius Onyero Onwuegbuzie offered prayers for Sir Anthony Chuks Obuh ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election billed for October 29, 2014 and in his intention to govern Delta state come 2015.
According to the Catholic Priest, “Our brother Tony Obuh has indicated interest to run for the governorship race in Delta state. He has identified the glorius power of God, that is why every Sunday, he has asked us to say Mass for him and he is justified in it.
“He has identified with the Church that we should be praying for him. When somebody says you should pray for him because he is coming out for an election, if you do not pray for that person, it becomes a sin.
“We pray for politicians so that our state would be good. When you pray for people who have God fearing spirit, then you would be happy too but when do not pray and somebody who is not God fearing enters into that particular position, there will be problem.
“We therefore pray for our brother who has asked us to pray for him. Our prayer for him is that he may be victorious in this race in the Name of Jesus Christ. Our prayer for Tony Obuh is that he may win and become the Governor of Delta state in the Name of Jesus.
“We will continue to pray for him (Tony Obuh) that in your race to the governorship, God will give you victory. As Obuh has appreciated the favour of God and the victory of the Holy Angels, the Holy Angels will always clear the way for you. Victory shall be yours, victory shall be ours, in the Name of Jesus Christ we prayed, Amen.”
