So we want to give God thanks for those six challenging years God has led us, he has helped us to keep faith.

“We thank Akwa Ibom people also for your support, I have not seen a government in Nigeria today that has enjoyed then I have enjoyed in Akwa Ibom, may God bless you all”, he stated.

“I want to assure my people that we will continue to serve God through all of you and please we need everyone’s cooperation just to pray with us let God take us to where we are going.

“Let me sound a bit of warning, stop castigating the Governor that he has built an International Worship Center, you don’t understand what I am doing, I am raising an altar that will negate every other speaking. I am raising an altar that will take us to where we are going to”.

Delivering a sermon on the theme ‘Rest from the Days of Adversity’, culled from Psalms 94:13, the General Overseer, Central Chapel International, Bishop Emma Isong, said adversity does not come to God’s people without reasons.

He said adversities seek to try the word of God upon the lives of God’s people, expedite a fulfillment, bring them closer to God and activate a new covenant, humble and expose a man’s heart.

Bishop Isong, while expatiating on the significance of the sixth anniversary Thanksgiving Service, declared that as God allowed six days of work and rested on the seventh day, so shall Akwa Ibom State in the remaining years of Governor Emmanuel’s administration experience rest from all adversities and fulfillment of the Completion Agenda.

Governors Are The Cause of The Country’s Problems – President Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari has accused governors of causing the country so much pain as a result of the strike of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Judiciary workers had embarked on a 64-day strike over the refusal of governors to implement the autonomy for the state judiciary.

Last year, President Muhammadu Buhari had signed the Executive Order 10 for the enforcement of the autonomy of the judiciary but the 36 governors kicked against the order.

When he played host to the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) at the State House, Abuja, on Friday, the president spoke on his commitment to devolving of power to the people.

“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary. Unfortunately, this was met with some resistance at the state level and led to a more than two months strike action that has caused the country a lot of pain.

“Luckily the National Assembly has nearly completed the constitutional review process, which I hope would address some of the burning issues agitating the minds of our people.’’

The president also spoke about the effect of the strike, lamenting its security implication.

“Fortunately, this strike has been called off and prosecution of some of these people (those behind insecurity) would soon commence, while our security agencies expand their network in closing in on the others,’’ he added.

NIREC was led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Supo Ayokunle.
