God Is A Democrat, Does Not Support Rigging But God “Approves” Those That Rig And Succeed-Gov. Jonah

Published

The governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has described his “victory” over Gov. Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, whom he claims to have defeated to become the new “chairman” of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, as the will of God.
jang_josMr. Jang, was speaking in Jos, Sunday, at a special interdenominational church service held at Faith-way Chapel Church and organized by the Plateau State government as part of the activities marking the forthcoming 14th anniversary of uninterrupted democratic governance in Nigeria.

His remarks came two days after a controversial governors’ forum election in which Mr. Amaechi was declared winner after clinching 19 votes to defeat Mr. Jang who got 16. The result of the election however portrayed Mr. Jang as a usurper to the NGF chairman position.

Governors who supported Mr. Jang rejected the outcome of the elections, claiming it was rigged.On Saturday, Mr. Jang convened a meeting of the protesting governors and presided as chairman.

“I can assure you that my emergence as the chairman Nigerian Governors’ Forum was the will of God because I went to Abuja for the NGF election not with the intention to contest but northern governors and the PDP governors’ forum endorsed my candidature. When (Ibrahim) Shema of Kastina stepped down, both forums insisted I should contest; I contested and won. So, it’s the will of God.”
He said he had never wanted to be chairman of the NGF.

Mr. Jang told the church that the allegation that a faction of the NGF rigged the elections in his favour was not true. “God is a democrat, does not support rigging but if you rig and succeed, that means God approves of it.”

Mr. Jang called on Nigerians to pray for their leaders to enable the present administration at all levels succeed.He said the current controversies being faced by government at the moment is a foreshadow of what is likely to happen at the 2015 general elections.

“I believe that God has anointed who will be President of Nigeria in 2015 but only him knows who it is,” he stated.

He also said democratic governance was the best form of government that takes care of every sector, pointing out that even the military enjoys more during democracy.“The military enjoys better during democracy. I’m a living example because I was opportune to serve as governor during the military era and now again as a civilian; so, to my mind, the military should not carry guns to force out democratic governance again,” he said.

During the church service, prayers were offered for the restoration of permanent peace in the country and stability of good governance in Nigeria and the entire African continent.

    This shows dat Mr. Governor has been reading is own bible up side down bcos if God is a democrat, Pst Adeboye wouldn’t have been a pastor today. If God is a democrat, David would not have been chosen or anointed as king bcos if He (God) had asked his brothers 2 vote b4 choosing him they wouldn’t have voted 4 him (David) bcos 2 them he’s not even qualified 2 face Goliath not 2 talk of becoming a king. So Mr. Governor, the God we save is a Good Dictator. He does anything and everything He thinks and knows that is best for u without consulting or asking anybody to vote.

Buhari has ordered probe into Lekki shootings: Minister

Sunday Dare, Minister of Youths and Sport says Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered probe into shooting of end SARS protesters in Lekki area of Lagos.

The minister made this known in an interview on Arise TV on Friday.

About 53 protesters were killed, and many left wounded after soldiers opened live ammunition on the #EndSARS protesters Tuesday night.

When the minister was asked about the silence of the president on Lekki shootings in his #EndSARS address, Dare said Buhari would speak after the outcome of a probe he had ordered.

He said; “For sure the president has ordered an investigation, he had a national security meeting yesterday.

“I can tell you that this is already ongoing because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public.

“It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward, in this case, it’s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration and I think it is important to get the facts right.

“I think that’s the path the president has towed and I am sure that when the facts are made available, this president – because he has integrity – will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki.

“Previously, we just had lip service that SARS scrapped. For the first time, you have a presidential pronouncement that SARS has been dissolved followed by the inspector-general and then we saw quick steps thereafter.

“And I think when you look at what has happened in the past and the level of responsiveness and concrete steps, the whole five demands of the youth were wholeheartedly accepted by the president and he set up a process.”
