The Chief of Staff to the State Governor, Terwase Orbunde, who received the defectors on behalf of Governor Samuel Ortom applauded their decision to have jettisoned the APC which he described as a failed political party that could not secure the lives of people and revive the economy of the country.

The governor told the defectors that the Peoples Democratic Party was the only political party that could guarantee the security and economic survival of the country and assured them of equal rights and privileges in the party.

State PDP Chairman, John Ngbede, expressed delight that the defection of the APC ward chairmen and other top members had weakened the party in Makurdi LGA, stressing that the APC must be voted out of power at the national level to ensure a better Nigeria.

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Ibrahim Alhassan formerly of the APC Central Mission, and Solomon Kwaghtser formerly of APC Makurdi South said the decision to join the PDP was to team up with the Governor who they noted had done well in tackling the security challenges confronting the state.

Pastor Adeboye Finally Breaks Silence on Son’s Death

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Friday night, May 7, spoke on the demise of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.

Pastor Dare died in his sleep at the age of 42 on Tuesday, May 4 in Eket, Akwa-Ibom where he was leading a church.

Preaching at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service, Pastor Adeboye urged the worshippers to always give thanks rather than ‘blame and question God’, The Nation reported.

He said: “Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children etc and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God.”

With biblical reference to Ezekiel 24:16, he said, “God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her”.

The respected cleric continued: “What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God, I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same with ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command. (Lamentations 3:38). “Finally in all things let’s learn to say thank you father and It is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name.”
