Cleric, congregants March for Trump
Ahead of the United States Presidential election on November 3, founder of the Living Christ Mission Worldwide and Proprietor, Hezekiah University, Umudi, Imo State, the Most Rev. Daddy Hezekiah, and scores of his congregants, have solicited the re-election of the United States President, Donald Trump.
Speaking at the church’s administrative headquarters in Onitsha, Anambra State, the founder noted that his support for Trump was premised on his numerous achievements, including his protection and propagation of Christian faith; recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, despite all “persecutions and hatred” he has encountered in the hands of the democrats and some countries such as China, Russia, Turkey and European countries.
He regretted that the Trump’s challenger, Joe Biden, was yet to exhibit moral and leadership character deserving of the Presidency of the US.
He said: “What necessitated this great prayer march, was Trump’s unequalled monumental global achievements, especially his moves to make peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirate (UAE) after about 58 years of unhealthy relationship on one hand, and Israel versus Bahrain, on the other hand.
Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel, was indeed a giant step in the global history.
“All these great achievements, coupled with enormous persecutions against him, as a result of unprecedented hatred, envy, jealousy, bias, selfishness and wickedness, by many people in the world, made me to declare a prayer march for him.”
In the event attended by the Chairman, National Planning Committee of the march, Prof. Uriel Nwanolue, the Vice Chancellor of Hezekiah University, Prof. Enouch Ajunwa, and a lecturer, Dr. Jane Achukwusi, among others, the cleric said though he had not seen Trump physically, he took his time to spiritually visit him when the U. S president contracted the Coronavirus disease (COVID -19), and prayed for him.
According to him, he was encouraged by the disposition of Trump in joining politics despite being a billionaire in 2016, essentially to address moral decadence in the U. S, including the same-sex marriage, securing the porousness of the country’s territory against the activities of illegal immigrants, and his rebuilding the U.S agenda.
In their speeches, Nwanolue, Ajunwa, Achukwusi, among others opined that Trump had given the U.S pride of place, which needed sustenance and consolidation in the eyes of Christiandom.
