The General Overseer, Wind of Change Deliverance Ministries situated at Queen Street by Lagos/Asaba Expressway, Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area, Apostle Dr. Chuks Elisha Okenye also known as Baba Fire has applauded the developmental strides of the Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
Apostle Okenye in a chat with journalists over the weekend stated that Governor Okowa is doing well, while appealing to him to look critically at the good things his predecessor in the person of Governor James Onanefe Ibori did to transform his hometown, Oghara that it is now described as “Oghara London”.
According to him, “There is no doubt that 90 percent of Ika people are asking Okowa to do more for his homeland, Ika. Despite the bad picture Ibori maybe painted with by some people, no Oghara person will speak I’ll of him because his performance made him a household name to be celebrated anytime, any day in that part of the state.
“Sincerely, Okowa is doing a lot to put smiles on the faces of his people. I know he is a governor for all Deltans, but his homeland, Ika should be better if not compete with Oghara to finish well as the governor from Ika land.
“Despite that Okowa has done well in road construction irrespective of poor construction work on some of the road by contractors. The bad roads in communities in Ika land are being overshadowed by the ones done so far. Ika land needs other people – oriented projects to attract foreign investors and develop the land.
“I want it to be on record that it was during Okowa’s time as governor that Agbor became a city like other communities in Ika land turning towns with new looks.
“Okowa becoming the governor is a golden opportunity God has given us to develop our land. I am appealing to our “talk and do” governor to use his good office to affect Ika land and the people the more now”.
The clergy also used the opportunity to appeal to Okowa for even spread of dividends of democracy to Ika communities, saying that Ika nation is one. Continuing, he said, “I know Okowa is a man of wisdom and I believe it is never too late for him to accomplish his mission. I will keep praying for Okowa to finish well. It’s on record in Ika Weekly edition of 2014 that I was the first person whom God used to prophesy that an Ika man will succeed Governor Emmanuel Udughan. I never relented after prophesying but I took my prayer warriors to mountain to pray which came to pass.
“Okowa should remember Wind of Change Deliverance Ministries and other churches for the goodness of God in his life”.
Apostle Okenye while suing for peace, unity and love among Ika people for progress, frowned at the poor representation of Ika south political leaders, which according to him was among his prophecies for the year, 2020 that the people will cry out because of political setbacks. He said those following his prophecy for the year will attest to the fact 90% of them have come to pass.
He pointed out that it is unfortunate that in Ika South, there is no political leader since everyone is claiming to lead unlike our sister local government, Ika North East with one voice. The firey pastor enjoined the people of Ika South to unite and produce a leader that will represent their collective interest.
