Hon. Emuebie said that utmost power belongs to God. “Since the time of Dennis Osadebe, we have not produced a governor. Now that it is our turn, we have decided to deploy prayer, right from the inception of the group, as one of our tools to ensure Okowa returns as Governor in 2019.We have nothing else outside prayers, hence the second edition of the general prayer session for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, which held at Pace Hotel, Agbor in 2017 will take place soon”.
Mr. Innocent Apaokwueze (Ayoba) speaking at the meeting, commended the leadership of the group for their good work for the governor, stressing that Governor Okowa should be supported for the development of Ika Nation. He urged members of the group to prepare themselves for 2019, so as to see Ika South Local Government Area cast massive votes for the governor.
Also speaking, Hon. Chris Ehianuta described The Bridge Builders as“ a liberation group in Ika South”, saying that as their name goes, they have bridged the gap between the government and the masses in Ika South.
Emphasizing further on the need to cast block vote for the governor in 2019, Hon. Fred Ofume, immediate past chairman of Ika South Local Government Area, and the senior special adviser to the governor on environment, said Ika South being the home of the governor should record the highest votes.
Hon. Okorogo Henry also charged the group members to mobilize strongly for Okowa, especially at the grass root levels, saying that if Okowa fails to go back as governor in 2019, it would take another 50 years for the opportunity to return to Ika Land.
