Ortom: Pastor Adeboye Prayed For Me To Become Benue Governor

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, on Friday night at the Redemption Camp of the Redeemed Christian Church of God located along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, told the mammoth crowd of worshippers how he dropped out of school, became a motor park tout and now a governor.



Ortom, while sharing his testimony at the service which climaxed the week-long 63rd annual convention of the RCCG with the theme ‘The All Sufficient God’, attributed his victory at the governorship poll to the special prayers of the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, for him.

He said, “My name is Samuel Ortom. I am from Benue Province 1 Mega Parish, Makurdi. My wife and I are workers in the church. My testimony is that in 1979, I dropped out of school in Form Two but at the same time, I met the All-Sufficient God, and that was the turning-point in my life.

“Today, through tutorials and distant learning, I have a PhD. And by the grace of God, I started work as a motor park tout. By the grace of God, I went through all kinds of leadership positions at the local government level, state and at the federal levels. I was the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, and at a point, the supervising Minister of Aviation”.

Ortorm further said when God told him in 2012 to contest for governorship, he met with his pastor, who led him to the Redemption Camp, where, he said, God told him to go ahead with the contest.
“Though I had no money, I went ahead,” he stated.

He said after the resignation of his ministerial appointment, “I met our daddy in the Lord (Adeboye) and told him my intention, he prayed for me and I remember his last words were: ‘God, give me a testimony that on May 29, 2015, my son will be sworn in as governor of Benue State’.

“After passing through various trials, each time I met him (Adeboye), he told me that it shall be well. Today, it is well; I am the Governor of Benue State”.
