…Says the Governor’s initiative to construct the most outstanding ecumenical center in West Africa in Ebonyi is innovative, historical and monumental
Lady Monica Ada Chidinma Eze, the Founder and President of David Umahi Nweze Akabuorah Ebonyi Transformation Agenda (DUNAETA), a virile and compact Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) aimed at propagating and promoting good governance, vision and Ideals of Governor Umahi in Ebonyi State has described the donation of five Hundred million Naira (N500M) to empower 2,500 Pastors and five arms of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as unprecedented, historical and monumental in the annals of politics in Ebonyi State.
Governor Umahi who on assumption of office on 29th May 2015 dedicated his tenure to God almighty and thereafter set up the Divine Mandate Pastors’ Forum with 2,500 Pastors drawn from the five blocks of CAN as bedrock members. Governor Umahi in his unique style of administration of eradicating poverty in Ebonyi State donated N250million to the Divine Mandate with each of the over 2, 500 members, receiving N100, 000 each while the five blocs of CAN shared N250 million, “this act to empower 2,500 Pastors drawn from the Divine Mandate Campaign Platform and members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the state with N500 million at a stretch has earned Governor Umahi unassailable divine endorsement to win the 2019 gubernatorial election unobstructed”.
Monica further explained that Governor Umahi initiated the construction of N2.5Billion Naira ecumenical center the largest of such worship place in West Africa replica of the temple built by King David in Jerusalem where everybody Ebonyians no matter whatever part of the world he or she is can pray while facing the centre and such a prayer will surely be answered, “to truly make Ebonyi State God’s own State, Governor Umahi directed that Worship Centres should be established in various Government Ministries where every civil servants and the general public are expected to pray and dedicate government activities to God by every Monday from 7am to 9am”.
Monica further stated that Governor Umahi while disbursing the funds to empower these Pastors in realization that pastors and other members of the clergy were not exempted from the harsh economic challenges of life noted that temptation, poverty, idleness and lack of knowledge do not know who a pastor is, as human challenges are products of the environment, “the Governor maintained that this fund should be a mustard seed and if it is too small to start something, aggregate it as I believe that the over N500 million we are disbursing presently would yield over N4 billion in two years,”
Lady Monica Ada Eze AKA ADA EBONYI pointed out that every active follower of how Umahi emerged as Governor of Ebonyi State could recall that it was divine as it has never happened in the politics of Nigeria that a sitting Governor of your State will be against your candidature and you still emerged which was the case of Umahi with the erstwhile Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief Martin Elechi just because of the prayers of these pastors. It is based on this fact that the Governor Umahi stated, “Your prayers are not debts unto us don’t feel that you worked for me and got no reward but realise that your rewards are of compound interests before God. Money is, however, highly needed in the present day evangelism because if you are preaching to a hungry person and is not properly dressed, he will not believe you. He will say if God can do what you claim, why he hasn’t done it for you and people disbelieve native doctors because they would claim to make one rich yet dress in rags.”
Monica highlighted that 18th November has been marked out as the day to kick start the campaign for the reelection of this great man of God whom God has used to turn the fortunes of the State around and on that day all Ebonyians have resolved to fast from 8am to 6pm on the day of the rally to hand over to God the reelection of his great son as Governor of Ebonyi State. Monica who also doubles as Technical Assistant (TA) on Media to Governor Umahi stated that the Pastors, CAN members, over 5, 000 empowered widows, government officials among others, would participate at the flag off of the reelection of Apostle Umahi campaign rally on Nov. 18, at the Pa Ngele Oruta stadium.
She reasoned that with the amount of peace, prosperity and joy that the administration of Governor Umahi have brought to many families in Ebonyi State the trusim as contained in Proverbs 29:2, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice…” may have been inspired by the Holy Spirit because of Apostle David Nweze Umahi. Monica therefore urges all Ebonyian to reelect “righteous” Apostle Umahi so that we all shall rejoice in the abundance of peace that follows God’s laws and wisdom. Go vote Apostle Umahi and Dr Eric Kelechi for the progress of our dear young State.
