The founder and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman has visited the governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri at the Bayelsa Government House, Yenagoa.
Suleman said the emergence of Diri as Governor of the oil-rich Bayelsa was total act of God.
The cleric spoke when he paid a courtesy visit to the governor on Monday saying the enthronement of Diri as divine gift from God to the people of the state.
He described Governor Diri as the best profound leader and his emergence is “the beginning of a new dawn for the state.”
Suleman added that he had since been praying for the governor against conspiracy and gang up by mischief makers, maintaining that it is only prayers that can sustain whatever has been entrusted with by God.
“I want to tell the people of the state that it is a new dawn for them. I pray that God will give the governor ideas and plant around him the right people that will help in bringing peace and development to the state,” he said.
Suleman likened the governor to the biblical David, especially his constant and public show of gratitude and trust in God, noting that his heart of gratitude is a proof that God will stand by him.
He prayed that God would give him ideas and support him with the right people that would not sabotage the opportunity that God has given to him.
In a brief remark, Governor Diri described Apostle Suleman as God’s general and prayed that God will continue to uphold him while thanking the man of God for his fervent prayers for the government and the state as a whole.
The governor urged him not to relent in his prayers for the state, stressing that Bayelsa needs his prayers at this time than ever before.
