Governor of Ebonyi State,  David Umahi has urged the pilgrims to show great deal of integrity and moral values while in the Holy land and also fervent in praying for the nation, especially for the forthcoming 2019, general elections.

 

Governor Umahi, disclosed this during his valedictory address and flag-off of BasicTravel Allowance presentation to Ebonyi State Pilgrims in Abakaliki.

 

Umahi tasked the pilgrims to be fervent in praying for the nation, while in the Holy Land, maintaining that the country at this time required those who would doggedly stand in the gap to avert the seemingly divine judgement passed against Nigeria.

 

“This is very, very important, It is in the situation we find ourselves in Nigeria, that Esther said, I will go and if I perish, I perish. We are seeking for men and women that would stand in the gap for this nation. “It is as if judgment has come upon our nation, that is why I feel excited that in a time like this, you are going to the Holy Land.

 

“It is very important that you say like Esther if I perish, I perish; that in the presence of God, that you get lost and begin to talk to God about this nation. There is judgment upon the nation.

 

“There is so much suffering, so much oppression, so much hatred, so much division, so much segregation and suspicion, even among leaders

 

“So we must know that our nation is troubled and I feel very bad when people talk like gods.

Umahi further urged the pilgrims to always pray for the state party primaries… “pray for our elections, pray for our finances…that the good Lord would continue to bind Ebonyi State as one united family.”
