It has been revealed how a major political opponent of Senator Mao Ohuabunwa sacrificed 17 elephants to stop his victory at the Abia North senatorial re-run in 2016.
Pastor Okey Dike who made the revelation Friday while preaching at the Follow Better prayer summit held at the Michael Okpara Auditorium Umuahia, however did not mention the name of the opponent.
He said that the opponent travelled to a country in East Africa where he made the sacrifice in his desperation to stop Ohuabunwa at all cost.
The cleric said that despite the huge sacrifice by the opponent , God gave victory to Ohuabunwa whom he said had been chosen for the position.
He noted that no amount of conspiracy could stop a man ordained by God for a divine purpose, adding that Ohuabunwa did not emerge a senator by his own powers but by God’s approval.
Pastor Dike, therefore, counselled those desperate to unseat the senator to stop dissipating their energy because it is futile to fight against a man with divine mandate.
Meanwhile hundreds of Ohuabunwa’s supporters under the aegis of Follow Better Organisation thronged out for the prayer summit for the success of his re-election bid.
Different kinds of prayers were ‘fired ‘ against obstacles to his electoral fortunes at the February 16 poll.
Speaking at the event, the Senator said “the satanic altars against him are in trouble”, as long as God remained his hiding place.
The former Speaker, ECOWAS parliament said he was not perturbed about the boastings and shenanigans of his opponents because he trusted in God.
Highlight of the event was the anointing of Senator Ohuabunwa by a team of clergy led by Prophet Charity Nkume .
They declared that Ohuabunwa would be re-elected to complete the various projects he had initiated for his constituents .
