Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has lamented that the chapel in Aso Rock will be closed for four years following the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senator Okowa made the statement during a meeting with church leaders in Isoko South’s local government area of the state.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was announced the winner of the presidential election as the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and running mate Okowa came second.
Okowa said: “I believe that this is the time for us to dwell in the light of God so that His will be done in our state and Nigeria. This is the time for us to rise in faith and not the time to mourn. The church must be prayerful, cautious, and think from the inside.”
The Delta state governor appealed to religious leaders and the indigenes to support the PDP’s governorship candidate Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, in the March 11 gubernatorial election.
Okowa also urged the people of the oil-rich state to thumbprint all candidates of the PDP for the Delta State of House of Assembly in constituencies of the state.
