“In a special way, I thank the CAN and our Bishops for standing in the gap in this period of crisis. The peace we have enjoyed within these 6 years of our administration is all by the grace of God in partnership with our Pastors.”
“My dear wife has been my great partner in progress knowing that combining office work and fasting and Prayers are not easy jobs but she has always been by my side and keeps the home running.”
“I thank the Deputy Governor, the Speaker, EXCO members, and members of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly for their partnership both before and in this time we are seeking the face of God.”
“We engaged in these Fasting and Prayers because we believe in God and believe that when we seek the face of God, he will answer us.”
