Adamawa State Governor, Senator Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow has asked Arch Bishop Lemuel Bappa of the Lutheran Church of Nigeria (LCCN) to make him one of the junior pastors of the Lutheran so that he govern well.
Bindow said this while addressing hundreds of Christian worshipers at the convention camp ground of the Lutherans in Demsa, Adamawa State during the annual convention of the church.
While addressing them he thanked God for making him the governor of the state through their support prayers, he promised to work for them through the manifestos of the All Progressives Congress Party (APC).
“I want to be one of the Junior Pastors in this church; I can continue working and doing the good work I’m doing in the state. God actually made me your Governor through your help, prayers and support and as such I cannot betrays this trust you reposed on me,” he said.
He reminded the mammoth crowd of how his journey to Government House was predicted during his campaign days when he visited the camp and was prayed upon at the last convention.
Today, he says, the prayers of the Christians worshipers are answered by God Almighty.
“You remember during my campaign days last year, I came here and you people prayed for me to become the Governor of the state because you needed a change; God made me your Governor through your answered prayers,” he noted.
He maintained that nobody made him what he is but God and the people of Adamawa state; he is now a Governor of both the Christians and the Muslims.
Bindow, while quoting some verses in the Holy scriptures, enjoined them to live in peace with one another and pray fervently for political office holders most especially President Muhammadu Buhari that God should give him a proper guide to rule the country well.
“Live in peace with one another, as it is the only way we can comfortably work and bring the dividends of democracy for you people. For without peace there cannot be development”.
Governor Bindow went in company of the Deputy Governor, Marthins Nasir Babale and commissioners to thank them and seek for their prayers to lead them well in the state.
Arch Bishop Lemuel Bappa responded, saying the Governor should govern with the fear of God and be good to all and sundry.
