Ortom narrates how pastor who predicted his becoming governor in 1992 rejected his car gift from
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has narrated how Rev Samuel Alaha of Faithway Gospel Ministries, Gboko, who in 1992 prophesied that he would become governor of the state, rejected a car gift from him after the prophecy came to pass in 2015.
Ortom, who stated this on Sunday during a sermon in the church, explained that he visited Alaha and presented the new car in appreciation but the vehicle was returned after a few days.
The governor added that though Alaha received the car gift on the spot but called after a few days to inform him that he appreciated the offer but begged to return it, saying he did not find it necessary.
He described the clergyman as a committed and true man of God whom he had known since 1980, lauding his zeal and commitment in service to the almighty God.
Ortom stated that as Governor, he is determined to execute God’s counsel to people of the state at all times.
The governor admonished the congregation to seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and assured that “all other things will be added onto you.”
He also called on Christians to go back to the time when there was love towards one another “as it used to be in the past when we became Christians. True brotherly love is lacking today, that is why there seems to be conflict all the time.”
