The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has revealed that the postponement of the presidential and legislative elections of February 16 was an answer to prayers he made to God.
Ekweremadu revealed that some months back, he prayed that the if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is going to win, the election should be postponed, noting that the postponement is a sign from God.
The number two man in the upper chamber stated this while speaking at the National Executive Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, February 19.
Describing the election postponement as an embarrassment to the entire nation, Ekweremadu said:
“I said to myself, God if we are going to win this election, let it be postponed. That would be the last sign for me as a believer in God, and behold, I woke up on Saturday morning and the elections were postponed.
Two months ago, I was contacted by some of my colleagues at the International Parliamentary Union; there was a meeting that was fixed for last weekend and I was supposed to chair that particular meeting abroad.
So I appealed to them about the coming elections, asking that they should consider my interest, and they shifted it for one week.
They obliged me and fixed it for 23 and 24th of February and when the elections were postponed, I found it very embarrassing.”
Also taking a spiritual path, Sen. Dino Melaye stated:
“I have the network of God, and God has assured me that Atiku will emerge on Saturday.”
