Governor Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa State has pleaded with Arch Bishop Lemuel Bappa of the Lutheran Church of Nigeria (LCCN) to make him one of the junior pastors of the Lutheran so that he could govern well.
Bindow made the plea this while addressing hundreds of Christians worshipers at the convention camp ground of the Lutherans in Demsa, Adamawa State during the annual convention of the church.
Bindow thanked God for making him the governor of the state through their support and prayers, promising to work for them by implementing the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress Party (APC).
His words: “I want to be one of the junior pastors in this church so that I can continue to work and do the good work I’m doing in the state, God actually made me your governor through your help, prayers and support and as such I cannot betray this trust you reposed in me.
“You remember during my campaign days last year, I came here and you people prayed for me to become the governor of the state because you needed a change. God made me your governor through your answered prayers”.
Bindow stated that nobody made him governor but God and the people of Adamawa State.
Bindow, while quoting some verses in the Bible, enjoined them to live in peace with one another and pray for political office holders, especially President Muhammadu Buhari, so that God would guide them properly to rule the country well.
“Live in peace with one another as this is the only way we can comfortably work and bring the dividends of democracy for you people. For without peace there cannot be development,” he said.
The Deputy Governor, Martins Nasir Babale and commissioners were in the company of the governor at the event.
In response, Arch Bishop Lemuel Bappa told Bindow to govern with the fear of God and be good to all and sundry.
