- Obino urges cleric to pray against the evil spirits to leave the government house.
- Cleric says bad people are the evil spirits.
Anambra Governor Willie Obiano has claimed that there is presence of evil spirits in the Government House.
The governor stated this on Saturday at the Province of the Niger, Anglican Prayer Rally of Anambra State (APRAS) 2019, with the theme “The Righteous shall Flourish like Palm Tree”. The programe was held at the Alex Ekwueme square, Awka Anambra state.
Speaking through the secretary to the State Government, Prof. Solo Chukwubelu, the governor said there are evil spirits in the statehouse.
Reacting to the ministration of Bishop of Ogbaru, RT. Rev. Prosper Amah, who said there were evil spirits in the society, the Governor said there were also evil spirits in the government house, that come and go.
Obiano, therefore, called on the church to pray for the evil spirits to leave the government house permanently, so that government can provide quality services to the people.
“In the government House, the evil spirits come and go. We urged the church to pray hard to let them leave the government for good,” he said.
Also speaking at the occasion, the Archbishop, Province of Niger and Bishop, Dioceses of Awka, the Most Rev. Alexander Ibezim, said that the evil spirits in the government house were human beings. He, therefore, urged the governor to deal decisively with them to leave the statehouse.
“The government should fight evil spirits themselves in the statehouse, while the church will fight those outside the government house,” he said.
He also urged Christians to be prayerful to be able to subdue Satan and its agents looking for who to destroy.
