Anglican Primate, His Grace, Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba has expressed confidence in the abilities of candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra governorship election, Prof Charles Soludo.
Ndukuba stated this on Sunday while praying for the APGA flagbearer at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church Parish, Igboezunu-Aguleri, Anambra East local government area of the state ahead of the November poll.
He cited Soludo’s successful handling of the nation’s economy as Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), praying that God’s purpose for him would come to pass.
He said, “Heavenly Father we pray for your servant, Soludo, who has distinguished himself in this nation as a good steward of the resources of this land. That he has managed the Central Bank of this nation and other economic policies of this land. And you made our economy to prosper under his watch.
“God, you have also distinguished him in academia. Heavenly father, let the spirit of excellence continue to rest mightily upon him.
“Lord, grant him the desire of his heart. Holy God build your hedge around him, in this time of electioneering campaign, give him favour before thee. Let the heart of man look up to him.
“Heavenly father I pray that that purpose you have for him shall come to pass in Jesus name.”
Assuring Governor Willie Obiano of the church’s continuous prayers and support in the challenging times, the cleric also prayed for the peaceful conduct of the election and transition of power.
