“I am assuring you sir that the Almighty God is going to fight for you, Kaduna State and is going to fight for Nigeria,” the revered cleric said.

“We have been following the happenings in Kaduna State, particularly in recent months. We have been deeply concerned, concerned for the inhabitants of the state, concerned for the government and for you, Sir.

“It is not an easy thing to be Governor of Kaduna State at this particular moment. We know you have a problem that only God can solve, a problem far beyond the abilities of any human being.

“But I want to assure you Sir that victory is around the corner. And I believe God is going to answer the prayers.”

“We thank you Sir for honouring us and our state with this visit. We thank you for your prayers because the situation in Kaduna State and many parts of Nigeria are of such seriousness,” he said.

“They are beyond the capacity of any human being alone to solve. This country needs divine intervention, more than at any time in its history. So we are grateful for your prayers, blessings and we will continue to ask for more.”
