Why Witches and Wizards are fighting with me – Governor cries out
The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom, has explained how ‘witches and wizards’ dragged him to court for building a church in the state.
He made this known, while addressing journalists over the weekend in Uyo, the state capital.
He said building the church structure was necessary for the state as it was named after God to build a temple for Him.
The governor said: “All (the) witches and wizards came together and took me to the court that we are building a Christian Worship Center.
“They say they are atheists. The case is in the court, we won them but they have appealed,” he explained.
Meanwhile, residents of the state have also criticised the building of the structure, stressing that the money should have been used for other developmental needs of the oil-rich state.
Emmanuel also commented on allegedly picking a pastor and his cabinet members as his preferred successor ahead of the 2023 governorship election.
Responding to questions on if God revealed to him his successor as he claimed, the governor said: “Communication between a leader and God is different from what any other person would see or understand, people must understand that.”
