PHALGA PDP DEDICATES CAMPAIGN COUNCIL TO GOD
…as Sir Allwell Ihunda explains reasons
The Campaign Council of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area was dedicated to God yesterday in Port Harcourt.
The dedication, which took place at the Diocese of the Niger Delta North, Saint Paul’s Anglican Church Garrison, had the PDP chairmanship candidate for the April 17 Local Government election, Sir Allwell Ihunda, Chairman of the Campaign Council, who is also the State Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Sir Soni Sam Ejekwu, Alternate Chairmen of the Campaign Council, Councillorship candidates and some stakeholders of the party in attendance.
Speaking with Brave Views shortly after the dedication, Chairmanship candidate of PDP in PHALGA, Sir Allwell Ihunda said the essence of the service was to first honour God, seek His protection and guidance before embarking on the campaigns.
Allwell Ihunda noted that the Campaign Council would move from street to street, Unit to Unit and ward to ward, stressing that it is only when they recognize the supremacy of God that they could succeed in the electoral process.
“Today, the Campaign Council of the People’s Democratic Party, Port Harcourt City Local Government decided to come and dedicate our Campaign Council here in Saint Paul’s Cathedral Church, Diobu, to God Almighty, believing that and off course, recognizing the fact that, all powers belong to God.
“There is no way we can move into the streets, units and wards of PHALGA without seeking the presence of God, so that as we move in course of our campaigns for the forthcoming Local Government election, the Lord will lead us and victory shall be ours. He is going to secure our lives and everything we do shall be safe in His hands, that is the purpose of coming to this Church today”.
Ihunda noted that the choice of going to Almighty God was because every other gods bow to Him.
