May The Healing Be Total…
On behalf of the Idoma Area Traditional Council, Idoma Kingdom worldwide, my family and I wish to offer my profound congratulations to His Excellency, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia, the Advancer of the ‘Benue Healing Mass’, and His Excellency Barr. Sam Ode Deputy Governor-elect on their election by an outstanding majority of the good people of BENUE State. This is a testament to your acceptance by the populace backed by the Almighty to stir the Benue ship into an enviable and endurable future destined by God.
The electioneering was hard just like every genuine contest, but the rallying idea is that every contestant wants the best for Benue state, and the people had decided who is most suitable for the job at this time.
Given that I heartily, therefore, appeal to your Excellency, to be magnanimous in victory and the other contestants to accept the outcome as good fate and embrace the Governor-elect to forge a common front for the progress and prosperity of our dear State.
I remember with nostalgia that you were the first governorship aspirant to have visited me upon my ascension to this throne to seek my blessing for this race, for which I heartily invoked the concise and definite fatherly blessings upon you based on the scriptures in Acts 15: 18 which says, “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” inter alia.
Knowing you as a man of godly conscience, and a priest of God, I do not doubt that you recognize your election as furtherance of your earthly ministry, thus would carry every Benue son and daughter along as you champion the complete healing and restoration of Benue state and its people. I pray that our father in heaven will endow you with angelic knowledge, wisdom, understanding, sound health, and well-being to carry on this daunting but mandatory, achievable, and noble task of building the prosperous Benue State of our collective dream.
I trust that the Idoma nation would be given more noteworthiness through your administration and beyond.
Once again, on behalf of the Idoma Area Traditional Council and the sons and daughters of Idoma worldwide, accept my heartfelt congratulations, Mr. Governor-Elect!!!
