Convinced that killings in Imo State are politically contrived, Governor Hope Uzodimma has said he is confident that God will expose all those behind insecurity in Imo in general, if the people remain fervent in their prayer.
The governor also urged the Church to be steadfast in prayer as the instruments of war used by the enemies of the people to kill and destroy cannot be compared with the strength of God Almighty who protects His people in times of difficulties.
The governor spoke on Friday in his remarks at the Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu Square in Owerri, on the occasion of the second edition of the annual ‘Imo Prays’ as the special guest.
The event which first edition was organised last year by the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion has the theme, “At the name of Jesus,” for the 2022 edition.
Governor Uzodimma said he is to be contradicted that the insecurity in Imo State is politically contrived and prayed God to “arrest and expose all those involved in the dastardly act no matter who they are and where they are.”
While citing happenings in Somalia, Ethiopia and Yemen and the attendant human misery brought about by the war in Russia and Ukraine, and how development in those areas have been arrested by wars and insecurity, Uzodimma however, acknowledged that the development today in Imo State is gradually picking up because the State is relatively coming back to normal.
The prayer session had in attendance all the Bishops serving under the Owerri Ecclesiastical Province of the Anglican Church headed by Most Rev (Dr.) David Onuoha who is also the Bishop of Okigwe South Diocese.
