Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko has called
for prayers for the state as preparations heightened
towards the November 26 governorship election.

The governor noted that only prayers can sustain
the prevailing peace being enjoyed by the people
since the beginning of his administration. Mimiko
implored the people to help the state with prayer
so that peace which had been a permanent feature
of the state was not breached.
Addressing the congregation at the 70th
anniversary service and dedication of the main
auditorium of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC),
Oke Igan in Akure, yesterday, Mimiko said
elections conducted under his administration were
peaceful, including the ones conducted by the
trade union groups.
He lauded President of CAC Worldwide, Pastor
Abraham Akinosun and called for prayers for the
peace of Nigeria and the success of his
administration.
He admonished the church not to relent in its
prayers for Ondo State, especially as it was about
to witness another governorship election, stressing
that only prayers could sustain the prevailing
peace being enjoyed by the people since the
beginning of his administration.
Mimiko, who commended the leaders and
members of the CAC for their prayers, enjoined
Nigerians not to be discouraged by the current
economic situation in the country, but to remain
prayerful.
“I am bold to say it anywhere that your prayers as
saints have upheld us in this state. We have
continued to enjoy peace, which does not come
ordinarily but through your prayers. It is clear that
all the elections that have been conducted since
we came on board have been peaceful. Even the
NURTW election that used to be chaotic was
conducted inside our Dome here very peacefully.”
