Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri, said the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, remains a source of encouragement to his administration.
Senator Diri stated this yesterday during the dedication of the new pavilion built by his administration in his country home, Sampou, in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area.
While expressing gratitude to the respected cleric for his love and concern for his Prosperity Government and people of the state, particularly during last year’s floods, the governor recalled that the RCCG General Overseer did not only commiserate with him but also donated over 100 bags of rice to support victims of the flood.
He said that as part of Adeboye’s visit to the state to attend the 17th National Biennial Conference of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), he would also visit victims and flood affected areas in the state to see things for himself.
While dedicating the pavilion, Pastor Adeboye described Senator Diri as an exceptional leader that has the fear of God.
Quoting from the scriptures, he said rain signifies blessings but whenever it was in excess, it causes flooding thereby endangering lives and property.
Adeboye, who noted that the flooding was a wake-up call for the people to draw closer to their creator, prayed God to prevent the natural disaster from wreaking another havoc in the state.
