The Political Adviser to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ighoyota Amori has berated the General Overseer of Promise Kingdom Ministry, Sapele, Delta State, Bishop Godday Iboyi Okokporo over his Sunday prophecy that if former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori do not quit politics, he would be embarrassed.
Recall the ADVOCATE had on Sunday reported that Bishop Okokporo while prophesying at his church in Sapele, advised Chief Ibori to quit active politics and stop interfering the governance in the state or risk rebellion from his followers.
According to him, “You have done well as a man, you have brought development to your people, but let me tell you, that it is time to step down and apply wisdom in your political life.
“I am seeing people who are beneath you, accusing you that you cannot be the leader of the state forever, if you step down, you will have more respect and more fame because I see you talking and no one seems to be taking your counsel and then they will begin to see you as a threat,” he added.
However, Amori, one of the former governor’s faithful, while reacting to the clergyman’s prophecy, described the prophecy as not only satanic but politically motivated and from all intent and purposes is from the pit of hell.”
“He is playing a well-crafted script. He should give the script a second look before accepting to be the bearer of false prophecy” Amori said.
Amori, who is currently the Chairman of Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency, also likened the prophecy to some of Fr Ejike Mbaka’s prophecies of the Adoration Centre, Enugu.
“In this hard time when the economic downturn is taking a knock on every facet of life, the churches are not left out.
“So many Pastors and General Overseers are not finding things easy in their various churches hence some have resorted to fake prophecies and taking a cue from Fr Ejike Mbaka of Adoration Centre, Enugu, to make false prophecies in collaboration with some politicians to smear and antagonize imaginary enemies.”
The Otota (Prime Minister) of Mosogar Kingdom advised Bishop Okokporo to stay clear from politics stressing that the clergyman chose the wrong person to attack.
“No one needs to be told that the Bishop is playing politics and being used to fight an imaginary enemy” advising that the cleric should restrict himself to divine calling or join politics to understand that we have seen people like him.”
Amori cautioned the cleric not to be a pawn in the hands of politicians like Fr Ejike Mbaka as the end is always disastrous.
“Chief James Ibori remains a political colossus both in the state and in Nigeria have a good and excellent relationship with the state government, national and the party top hierarchy since he came back from incarceration in the UK.
“There has never been and there will be no disagreement between Ibori and the political class of the state and national, if that is what you Bishop Godday Okokporo is looking for, you will be very disappointed.
“Ibori has never been accused by anyone of interfering with the party or government day to day running” adding that the former Governor has never interfered or impose a candidate in a ward, State or national level.
