The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has disclosed how God used a friend to bless him with N200 million after he prayed and fasted for 3 months, The Cable reports.
The money was used for his litigation fees to reclaim his mandate in the 2007 Rivers gubernatorial election, and to take care of personal necessities.
NAIJ.com gathers that the minister shared the testimony on Sunday, December 10, at a thanksgiving service in Port-Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
Amaechi had headed to court after the Peoples Democratic Party presented his cousin, Celestine Omehia at the election, even after he had won the party’s primary election.
After the 6 month legal battle, the Supreme Court eventually sacked Omehia and installed Amaechi.
The minister stated: “We were so broke, we could not pay legal fees or children’s school fees. My wife prayed every day and night. I was fasting and praying for three months.
“I told God, ‘I have a friend who has money, please make him remember me.’
“I called my friend and he told me he has been looking for me. I told him I was in Ghana and he asked for my account. He sent me two hundred million naira. This is just to tell you that I believed God and he answered me.
“We must all go back to God in faith and prayers. Those who want to leave can go. I have come to understand that God passes us through these challenges to prove himself.”
In a related development, NAIJ.com previously reported that Rotimi Amaechi, the former governor of Rivers state, stated that the prayers said on his behalf by priests and other Christians helped him to stand against his adversaries.
