Reuben Wilson, Founder of PRIFGLA
An All Progressives Congress (APC) support group in Bayelsa State on Sunday organised a prayer and fasting programme to seek God’s intervention towards the unity and success of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The event put together by the group known as Pastor Reuben Initiative for Good Leadership and Accountability (PRIFGLA), attracted members of the APC support group from the eight local governments area in Bayelsa State.
A party chieftain and Chairman Advisory Council of PRIFGLA, Hon. Stephen Ogullah, while speaking during the prayers and fasting programme harped on unity amongst the leaders of APC in Bayelsa.
He noted that harmony amongst Chief Timipre Sylva, Chief David Lyon, and Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, was crucial for the party’s success at the polls.
Ogallah noted that it is only when APC leaders unite as one family that the mission to reclaim the governorship seat in Bayelsa, retain power at the centre, and win all the state Assembly, and National Assembly seats would be feasible.
According to him, losing the governorship position by virture of a Supreme Court verdict after winning in a landslide in the 2019 election makes their resorting to God imperative.
He emphasised the importance of good leadership at all levels , adding that accountability breeds good leadership and enjoined who are engaged in blackmail, backbiting and name calling to stop such in the interest of peace.
The advisory council chairman noted that the council has recorded huge success in uniting the leaders, adding that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Also speaking, the founder of PRIFGLA, Pastor Reuben Wilson, said the fasting and prayer was convened to seek the face of God in uniting the leaders of the party to rediscover its winning ways.
Wilson stated that it is the love he has for the party that prompted him to form the initiative, adding that the APC is ready to retain power at the centre and take over all the elective in the state.
The Director General of the initiative, Dr. Solomon David, said the initiative is determined to achieve the mission of galvanising support for the APC to win all the seats in the forthcoming election.
David noted that the party leaders have realised the need to work in unism and are ready to make the necessary sacrifice to ensure victory for the APC both at the national and state levels.
