Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has assured the people of the state that 2015 will be a better year than 2014.
The governor said this at the just-concluded The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement’s 2015 Mgbidi miracle crusade, which held at the Chosen International School, Mgbidi, in the state.
“Something will happen here today. Let me announce to all now that we are serving a living God. Let me tell all of you that 2015 shall be greater than 2014. As the governor of Imo, I have declared this year as a year of victory. And for this reason, God will be glorified in this land,” he said in his address to the over one million people reportedly at the crusade.
Okorocha described the General Overseer of the Lord’s Chosen Church as his brother, saying that he was an instrument that God had been using to cause great miracles and tremendous transformation in the society.
“We have heard what the Lord is using the pastor to do. You need our prayer, you need our support. There are over one million people here, but let me say to you, you have come to the blessed land of Mgbidi. You can never go back the same in Jesus name. For us in Imo State, we pride ourselves with the word of God,” he said.
Addressing journalists later, Okorocha expressed joy at the testimonies from the congregation.
“All of us are here today because of the good work of the Chosen and it is something which should glorify God. Many criminals and armed robbers have given their lives to God which I am sure government alone couldn’t have preached the gospel to change them.”
He described that extreme joy being experienced by Imo people as a result of his leadership, as the fulfillment of the scriptures that when the righteous is in power, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in authority the people would suffer.
“So far, so good, I like the will of God to be done. I came into government by God’s will and He who believes I can do the job, will bring it to accomplishment in my life. I believe it is all about God,” Okorocha said concerning his re-election bid.
Okorocha was joined for the crusade by Chaplain to the governor, Rev. Bunmi Babs; Commissioner for Lands and Deputy Chief of Staff to the governor, Uche Nwosu; Commissioner for Housing, Urban Development and City Beautification and Director General of Rochas campaign team, Mr. Alaibe; Special Adviser on Special Duties, Rev. Jessy Ayozie and Deputy Chaplain, Pastor Ralph Afoaku.
