Christian leaders from all the denominations in Tivland have expressed happiness with the selection of the new Tor Tiv, His Royal Majesty, Professor James Ayatse.
They made disclosure when the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Pilgrims Commission Abuja, Evangelist Tor Uja led a delegation on a solidarity visit to Governor Samuel Ortom yesterday at the Benue People’s House, in Makurdi.
Evangelist Uja stated that they came to express gratitude to God and solidarity with the Governor on the selection saying the outcome proved that God had answered the prayers of the people.
He said Christians in the land were excited that the Governor was doing things that were pleasing to God and prayed that the Almighty would turn his enemies into his friends in accordance with his word.
The Executive Secretary urged Governor Ortom to sustain his initiatives to boost agriculture and the economic empowerment of the people since they were predominantly farmers.
The delegation offered prayers for the Governor while Evangelist Uja presented a copy of a Tiv Bible to him.
In his remarks Governor Ortom prayed that God would strengthen the things that united the people and take away those that divided them.
He expressed his determination to promote Christian values saying the days of wild parties and lascivious living in Government House were over and urged believers to obey God at all costs.
The Governor stated that from his personal experience it was more profitable to serve God than ancestral idols who he said were from the devil who came to steal, kill and destroy.
