Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan would emerge stronger from the security challenges facing the country.
Speaking when he played host to the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Revd. Dr. Felix Omobude, in Asaba on Wednesday, Governor Uduaghan admitted that Nigeria was facing serious challenges but noted that President Jonathan will emerge as a better leader from the challenges.
“President Jonathan is passing through heat right now but he will come out stronger, more acceptable and a greater leader,” the governor said.
Attributing the success of his administration to God, Uduaghan said: “We cannot take credit for what we are doing in the state. Whatever modest achievement we are having is by the grace of God.”
He thanked spiritual leaders for their prayers for the country and Delta State in particular, noting that with their prayers for the state, a lot has been achieved.
“Without you in terms of prayers, in terms of counseling, Delta State will not be where it is today,” he said.
Governor Uduaghan congratulated Omobude on his election as the President of PFN and commended him for his efforts at repositioning the organisation.
Omobude, who led other executives to see Uduaghan, explained that his visit to Delta State, the fourth in the series of such visits to the states in the country, was aimed at bringing the national headquarters of the body closer to the people.
The cleric explained that the visits were also part of his plan to re-engineer the PFN and build synergy within the fellowship.
He lauded the developmental strides of Governor Uduaghan’s administration, identifying the free education programme of the government as one programme that is positioning the youths of the state positively.
“The greatness of a leader is in his people,” the PFN President said, adding: “I want to congratulate you on your developmental efforts, you have left no one in doubt that you mean well for Delta State. I applaud you for the successes in the field of education, you have touched the lives of many and the Church of Jesus Christ is grateful to God for the man that you are.”
