Ahead of the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Anambra state, a group, ‘Concerned Indigenes of Anambra’, has called on the General Overseer, Mountain of Liberation and Miracle Ministries, aka Liberation City, Pastor Chris Okafor, to contest the governorship elections in the State.
The popular fiery preacher, who is known for his prophetic accuracy and point-blankness on national issues, has by his prophecies elevated many politicians to seats of power. He is currently the personal spiritual adviser to scores of Nigerian State Governors, Senators, Ministers, and presidents in numerous countries around the world.
The group, Concerned Indigenes of Anambra (CIA) disclosed that they had been on his tale for over one year, persuading him to run in the 2017 Gubernatorial Elections in Anambra State, claiming that his candidacy was bound to transform Anambra for good. The group lamented their frustration in getting Pastor Okafor to see through their reasoning, wondering why he feels too comfortable being just a pastor while his homeland suffers from gross leadership deficit.
CIA insists that his visionary leadership and extreme prophetic endowments are some of the rare qualifications that stand him out from the crowd. They believe that men of God like Pastor Okafor should stop shying away from politics and start getting involved.
According to the CIA leadership; “We are tired of politicians, not only in Anambra but in the whole Igbo land; we need men of God who are seasoned, tested and trusted to come and take over power. They don’t have to have experience, we will back them up. We know how to mobilize the people, we wish Pastor Chris would listen to us; there is a ticket waiting for him. Anambrarians will be too blessed to have him as our Governor.”
They claimed that if Bishop Mike Okonkwo wasn’t of age, they would have approached him as well. Whether Pastor Okafor will honor the CIA with a response is unknown at the moment, but CIA has vowed to increase their pressure on him until they are able to make a politician out of the fiery preacher.
