How APC Will Defeat PDP In 2019 Election – Amaechi

The minister of transportation, Amaechi Rotimi, in view of 2019 election, has admonished members of the APC to devote themselves to God and trust him.

During a special thanksgiving service that marked the 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court judgement which declared him Governor of Rivers State, Amaechi recounted his victorious emergence as governor in 2007.

The thanksgiving service was held at the Abundant Life Evangelical Mission (ALEM) in Port Harcourt, Sunday, December 10, Premium Times reports.

In the gathering, he also shared testimonies of how God delivered him from his ordeal in 2007.

 

Following former vice president Atiku Abubakar’s recent defection from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, some members of the opposition party have urged Amaechi to return to party.

“The truth is that we believed God. Some who didn’t believe left us just as they are leaving now. God told me that what he will do in Rivers State will tingle the ears, and I believed. We were so broke, we could not pay legal fees or children’s school fees.

“My wife prayed every day and night. I was fasting and praying for 3 months. I told God ‘I have a friend who has money, please make him remember me.’ I called my friend and he told me he has been looking for me.

“I told him I was in Ghana and he asked for my account… He sent me Two hundred million naira. This is just to tell you that I believed God and he answered me,” Amaechi said.

While encouraging youths by saying that there is a vacuum for them in the corridors of power, he admonished them to be of help to those around them when they eventually come to power.

“We must all go back to God in faith and prayers. Those who want to leave can go. I have come to understand that God passes us through these challenges to prove himself. Now that they have left, for me, this is an opportunity for the youths. It is your turn. You must ensure that we get to power for you to fill the vacuum left”.

“I have sometimes asked God: ‘Why do you use me to bless people and after blessing them, they run away.’ Count how many people in Rivers State politics today that I did not help somehow. I don’t want to take the glory away from God. So for those who left, may God bless them.

“When you get your own appointment, also put somebody. Allow God to use you and leave the rest all up to him,” he advised.

Concerning the 2019 elections, he said: “if we don’t pray, 2019 will be very far from us. If we don’t win 2019, it would be your fault, not anybody else. We go to God because he answers. We pray, then go home and work. Back then, even in my father’s house in the village there was a prayer team…”

In his sermon ,the general overseer of ALEM, Eugene Ogu, recalled the travails of Mr. Amaechi in 2007. He said that his emergence as the governor of Rivers State was God’s answer to his prayer.

He remarked:“Making a man who did not participate in elections governor is one act of God that can not be erased in the history of Rivers State. God is in charge of this state, that is why the conspiracy of evil ones cannot stand.”

Apostle Ogu encouraged the congregation to uphold piety and shun evil, because “what you sow, you shall reap. If you are paid to kill people, somebody will kill you without collecting money. If you use your pen to lie against people, if you blackmail people, one day somebody will ‘blackpaint’ you.”
