REV. FR. EBUBE MUONSO ENDORSES CHIDO FOR GOVERNOR ANAMBRA 2021
The Fiery Catholic Priest and the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Uke, Anambra, Nigeria , Reverend Fr. Emmanuel Obimma, last week urged Ndi Anambra to support DR Chidozie Nwankwo Wilson, the Witchtech Boss, in order to continue with his good works.
The Catholic cleric, however, predicted that the State would face an unimaginable difficulty in 2021 and therefore charged Anambrarians to brace up to the situation.
He also called for serious prayers for the State.
While praying for the State and her leaders, the outspoken Catholic Priest enjoined Ndi Anambra to support Dr Chidozie Wilson Nwankwo (CWN) to continue the fight against economic decay, noting that the Catholic Church supports the fight against corruption hence it is sustained prayers against “bribery and corruption.”
He said: “We pray for Dr Chidozie Wilson Nwankwo; he is a man who understands the situation.
Since Anambra started, we have never experienced a governorship aspirant that has so much agricultural, educational and economic emancipation scheme, like him.
“For more than 20 years the witchtech boss have been in the active business of employing, giving scholarships, setting up entrepreneurs and have over 6000 Anambra youths employed, this one that we see what he has being doing, let’s follow him.
” I pray for a peaceful transition from my good friend Chief Willie Obiano, that he may complete his remaining one year. He will hand over to a better person, may the Lord keep him.
The Rev Fr praised Dr Chido for his efforts during the outbreak in march till today, for helping to prevent hunger from killing many families during the lockdown.”
“Chidozie has the character and the experience to guide us through this our darkest times and heal us through a long recovery,”
“,He said“And I know he’ll surround himself with good people – experts, entrepreneurs, intellectuals, police officials who actually know how to run the government and care about doing a good job running the government, and know how to work with our people, and who will always put the Anambra people’s interests above their own.”
“And he prayed and blessed him there, the people’s servant, DR Chidozie Wilson Nwankwo reacted immediately by thanking him and promised to give back the government of Ndi Anambra back to the people of Anambra”.

BAKARE OPPOSES REOPENING OF WORSHIP CENTRES, TELLS MEMBERS TO STAY AT HOME
Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has directed members of his church to ignore the directive of the Lagos State Government on the reopening of worship centres in the state.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on Saturday announced that mosques and churches in the state will reopen from August 7.
But Bakare, while speaking during an online service, faulted Governor Sanwo-Olu’s decision to reopen worship centres at a period the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control projected that COVID-19 may reach its peak.
The fiery preacher advised worshippers not to be “deceived by the government or religious leaders.”
Bakare warned, “I have to appeal to you once again, please keep safe and do your best to stay alive. Do not let anyone, whether religious leader or governmental leader, drive you like a sheep to the slaughter.
“If they (the government and the disease control authorities) said that the month of August is going to be the peak of the infection, why should they ask people to rush in (re-open the churches) again?
“Please keep safe and do your best to keep alive by keeping all the necessary rules. We know that by the grace of God this pandemic like the others before it has an expiry date. It shall not see our end. We shall see its end in the mighty name of Jesus.”
Bakare had said in June that his church would remain shut “until the coast is clear.”
