The Coordinator of the Bridge Builders, Mr. Peter Idion has said the Special Prayer programme for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was organised to set the tune for the campaigns and subsequent victory at the election.

Mr Idion who doubles as Special Assistant on Community Relations to Governor Okowa while giving an opening speech on Monday, December 31, 2018 in Agbor, harped on the need for Ika sons and daughters to support one of their own as he seeks reelection in the 2019 general elections and gave the assurance that with God on their side the PDP will emerge victorious in all the elections.

Governor Okowa who was accompanied by his wife Dame Edith, noted that PDP must build a solid foundation in Jesus Christ by frequently committing the campaign election into the hands of God, pointing out that they must also trust in God with their whole hearts.

He said the prevailing prayers of the men of God in Ika nation have healed the land, assuring Deltans of plans by his administration to build on the successes recorded during his first tenure.
