College of Bishops hold prayer session for Kalu’s release

A College of Bishops have taken it upon themselves to pray for miraculous end of the incarceration of former Abia State Governor, Senator Orji Uzo Kalu.
Kalu, who is also the Chief Whip of the Ninth Assembly, was imprisoned by the High Court sitting in Lagos, just when expectations were high that he stands a good chance of clinching his party’s presidential ticket in 2023, if the ruling All Progressives Congress decides to give the slot to an Igbo aspirant.
On the first day of  their prayer meeting, which was held in Lekki, Lagos, the College of Bishops stated that God had placed the burden in their hearts to intercede for Kalu.
“We have already commenced special prayer and fasting, according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. And we will not rest until God intervenes in Senator Kalu’s situation,” Rev. Bassey Akpan said.
While giving a brief exaltation, titled: “The Lord That Showeth Mercy,” the President of the Pentecostal Ministers Forum, Archbishop Chidi Anthony, asserted that God’s mercy is boundless, adding that the same merciful God reaches out to both the deserving and undeserving.
Anthony said: “We have gathered here as servants of the Most High God to plead to our Father to show mercy to our brother, with the hope that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s service to God and humanity, his contributions to national development,  economic  empowerment of individual and families across the nation in the past will be remembered for good.”
While leading a session of prayer for national cohesion and progress, Apostle Abraham Nabam of Miracle of The Lord’s Miracles Ministry and Coordinator of Christian Fellowship Association of Nigeria, recalled that Kalu is indeed a detribalised Nigerian who has also demonstrated great zeal and love for one Nigeria.
Nabam said: “The God we are calling upon in this regard is a God of peace.
“He is not the author of confusion.
“I believe that he did not make a mistake when he created our brother Kalu as a Nigerian.
“Though Kalu is an Igbo man, he is at home in the western, northern, southern, Middle Belt and every part of our great nation.
“In his entrepreneurial, political, religious and social activities, Orji Kalu has demonstrated nobility of character; he had maintained great nationalist focus, which deserves to be encouraged and rewarded and not with humiliation.”
Akpan recalled that in the past, illustrious national figures like Kalu had been lifted from prison yards to become president of Nigeria.
He said: “As we pray for Senator Kalu, it is my believe that God who made it possible for the likes of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the rest to occupy the nation’s seat of power from the prison will do the same for Kalu.
“We also urge Nigerians to remember this detribalised Nigerian, great apostle of national cohesion, iconic entrepreneur, exceptional politician, employer of labour and industry leader, and consider greater jobs he will yet render to our great nation.”
