<![CDATA[Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has said that if not for the Church, the crime rate and other anti social activities in Edo State would have been unimaginable.
He made this statement at a meeting with the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Edo State branch while reacting to a question on whether he would go on to execute the plan of the outgoing APC government of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole which seeks to relocate all the churches in the GRA and other places considered inappropriate.
According to the PDP governorship candidate who is a regional pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Edo State, “I cannot destroy my father’s house; the law does not make the people afraid, it is the word of God. If not for the Church, Edo would have been a jungle”.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu went further to reassure the gathering of pentecostal church leaders who came in their hundreds that he will not disappoint the Church when he is elected the governor of Edo State on September 10.
Led by Apostle Great Bamidele, the Director of Spiritual Gatekeepers, the assembly of ministers prayed for Pastor Ize-Iyamu’s success in the forthcoming poll.
In his concluding prayer, the Chairman of the Pentecostal fellowship of Nigeria, Edo State Branch, Bishop Mon Igbinosa emphasized that Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is the Lord’s Chosen.
