The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has spoken about his visit to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCC), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, when he sought a second term.
According to him, Adeboye assured him that all would be well.
Obaseki revealed this on Friday night at this year’s RCCG Holy Ghost Congress which was held at the church’s headquarters on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
He said, “When it looked impossible and when men rose, He (God) came out to say that He is God and only He has the power.
“About the time when the crisis started a year ago, I came to the (RCCG) camp with my wife and met Daddy G.O.”
Obaseki said after explaining his political challenges, Adeboye told him, “My son, it is well. Don’t be afraid, you will overcome and you will win.”
The Governor who was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in 2016, was denied the party’s ticket this year as he fought a political battle with the former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
He eventually decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC.
