Ortom revealed this during the April edition of the church Holy Ghost congress held at the redemption camp on Friday.
“When I wanted to contest for the 2015 election, I came to the Redemption Camp to pray and I went to Daddy and Mummy G.O,” he said.
“They prayed for me and despite all the challenges that accompanied the race, I became the governor and I was sworn in.
Recall that Governor Ortom defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party on the 25th of July, 2018.
Continuing, he said: “In 2017, challenges came over me and I said I was not going to contest again in 2019, let me remain a one-term governor.
“The following day during my devotion, God asked me why I had decided to be a lone ranger. He assured me He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega.
“I picked up the courage, came to the altar and Daddy G. O. again. He prayed for me.
“But so many challenges came as we went through the race and there was this particular day before the election that Daddy GO called me when I was completely depressed and did not know what to do.
“After the prayer, we were encouraged again and went through the race. Again, despite all the challenges, God saw me through and I was elected the Governor of Benue State again. Praise be to the Lord.”
