Sometimes in January 2019 the MD/CEO of Ubotex NIG Ltd Elder Ubong Obot in collaboration with Ntufam Elijah Iyak the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Sustainable Development Goals went round some churches across the State to seek the face of God and His intervention through prayers for a peaceful conduct of the 2019 Governorship election in the State as there was serious tension across the 31 Local Government Areas of the State and above all their prayer was for God to see Governor Udom Emmanuel through the troubled waters which was at its boiling point because of the threats of war as orchestrated by the proponents of Federal Might.
Their pledge was that if God sees Gov Udom Emmanuel through , they will go back to all the churches they went for such prayers to redeem those pledges they placed before God and thank Him.
Today Sunday 31st January 2021 exactly two years after, the duo have returned to four out of the ten Churches to Redem those pledges they made as according to them God took control of the electioneering process and put the devices of the devil to shame and made Governor Emmanuel come out tops.
The first port of call for the thanksgiving was The Apostolic Church Nigeria Ibiaku Uruan Area headquarters in Uruan Local Govt Area. The duo who were represented by a team made up of Elder Uwem Emah, Elder Kingsley Mathias, Elders Utibe Bassey , Elder Nsidibe Àkpan , Elder Gabriel Akpan , Elder Kufre Ekpo and Mr Abasiodomo Effiong was received by the officiating Minister Apostle I. E. Okon who thanked Elder Ubong Obot and Ntufam Elijah Iyak for coming to redeem what they pledged as according to him it is better not to pledge than to pledge without redeeming as the Bible has stated, he also prayed God to replenish them. He accepted the token on behalf of the church in good faith.
The team moved to The Apostolic Church Nigeria Ikot Annie Itam District Headquarters in Itu LGA and was received on arrival by the officiating minister Apostle G. W. Akpabio who accepted the token on behalf of the church.
At The Apostolic Nigeria Ikot Inyang Area District Headquarters in IBIONO Ibom local government Area the team was received by Apostle G. D. Ukpa who also prayed for them and accepted the token in good faith.
The last port of call visited today was The Apostolic Church Nigeria Ikot Akpabio Area headquarters Nsit Atai Local Government Area where the team was by the officiating minister Apostle G. S. Ekanem who prayed for the team and the duo of Elder Ubong Obot and Ntufam Elijah Iyak.
The thanksgiving will continue till the last congregation is visited.
God bless and replenish them for it is very difficult to redeem pledges and promises.
