The founder and Senior Pastor of Holy Ghost Ambassadors Ministry International, Apostle Nyeneime Andy has said that the recent decisions of Fathers of Faith cannot be binding on Akwa lbom people.
This was in response to the statements by some clerics in the state who said they will not support known cultists as God will reveal the next Governor to them, which they explained would be in tandem with who Governor Udom will choose as his successor.
Addressing newsmen in his office at the church headquarters, the man of God said come 2023 God will speak and align through all Akwa Ibomites.
According to him, “In 2023, it will be government by the people and for the people.
“If you say fathers of faith have to take decisions for Akwa Ibom State, I bet you their decision will not be binding because they have to align with sons of faith across the state.
“When it comes to standing in front, the fathers should know it is time for their sons to come in. There is a move of God in the land.
“The move is that God is going to use a younger generation to affirm and confirm the next governor with the advice of fathers of faith.
“We will not allow one person to choose a governor for a state of over five million people. We are in democracy .
“The choice of Governor will not be someone that just appear from the moon. It will not be someone who has not been in this state and feel the pain of others,” the man of God said.
He noted that if PDP must choose a governorship candidate, it should be someone who has paid the price in PDP, in the state and who understands what it means to suffer.
Apostle Andy acknowledged that there is a division in the church, which according to him, is caused by a foreigner whom he said has come in to scatter the unity among Christian leaders in the state.
He believed that people are running spiritual things based on personal interests, adding that whatever God can speak through any Bishop in Hong Kong, God can also speak to any pastor in Akwa Ibom State.
The cleric argued that as a leader and mentor in Akwa lbom State, and having served the people, he affirmed it is time for him to speak up because according to him, in every generation God must raise Samuel to speak on God’s behalf for the people so that there will be transformation in the land.
Reading from 1 Samuel 1:12, Apostle Andy averred that Fathers of Faith should give sons of faith a chance.
“In the church today, certain people of certain age are retired. Some church denominations once you get to 70 years of age, you are retired.
“ It does not mean they are pushed out of the church. The older you grow you wax dim. They are still anointed but their strength determines their output. Every Moses must raise Joshua and every Elijah must raise Elisha.
“Come 2023, our fathers of faith should play advisory role, mentorship and should allow the sons they have raised over time to stand in for them and possibly in the place of prayer, choose the next governor of this state because mentally they are sound, physically and spiritually they are sound.”
He urged Akwa Ibom people to prepare to elect a governor that will rule the state beyond party lines.
