Fr Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian missionary priest working in Gambia, has called on the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to always keep him in their prayers.
The cleric said they should stand by him, insisting Obi had proven he could be trusted.
His statement is coming on the heels of the federal government accusation against Obi of inciting violence over the outcome of the February 25 poll, saying it is treasonable.
Also is the fresh controversy of a leaked audio of an alleged conversation between him and the founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo.
However, Obi, in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, described the audio as fake.
He further raised an alarm that immense pressure was being mounted on him to leave the country.
Meanwhile, Fr Kelvin in a statement via his Facebook page on Thursday said the forces against Obi could be likened to what Ephesians 6:12 described as principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places.
He wrote, “Always keep Peter Obi in your prayers. The forces against him are what Ephesians 6:12 described as principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places.
“These people are malicious and evil and are ready to sacrifice anything or anyone. If they can arrange fake priests and Bishops in a broad daylight, when it is strictly not called for, there is nothing they cannot do.
“I suggest that at all times, we should stand by Mr Peter Obi. He has proven again and again, that he can be trusted. And even if you don’t trust him 100%, the other options are far from being options.
“May God bless you all who keep standing for the truth. Nothing should distract you. Pray, and when there is a need to put anyone in his or her place, do so intelligently.”
