Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia state, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has revealed that the
Founder and president of LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on Sunday told the Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu that God saved him from the mouth of lions ,adding that God will continue to guide him .
The popular cleric made the statement in Lagos during the Thanksgiving service of Christ Embassy which Senator Kalu also attended .
He recalled that many former governors had gone to prison but never came out , stating that God has turned everything around for Senator Kalu
Speaking after Kalu’s testimony, he said , “How many former governor went into prison and came out. How many? And the way God turned his case around was extra ordinary, very extra ordinary . A situation human being will take as imposible, but God turned it around.
“Look at the details of the case, it was later that what sent him out of prison was not even his own suit. Do u understand? He was made the subject of the case and when the judgement was given for that suit, the whole case was sent away, everything was dissolved. God saved you from the mouth of lioness and may he continue to protect you in Jesus name” the pastor said
Earlier, the Senate Chief Whip had thanked God for using Pastor Chris Oyakhilome as instrument to speak to him . He revealed that Oyakhilome gave him a prophecy about his incarceration in October 2019,
According to him, ” Pastor told me I will be sent to Prison and released after six months . He also told me that no amount of intervention from anyone including world leaders would prevent me from going to the prison “.
Testifying from the pulpit, the former governor said , ” In October 2019, I was traveling to Abuja and Pastor asked me to drop by for a dinner . We have been friends for more than 28 years and we are very close. When I was about leaving , we prayed together and he told me what I didnt know how to digest . He said I should prepare myself because I was going to be in prison for six months. He told me it is something I cannot stop and no amount of intervention from world leaders can stop it .
“He said the expected day of the High Court judgement will be postponed and it all happened as he said . He told me I should come closer to God because what He has in stock for me after the prison experience is great. He made me understand it’s a phase God really want me to pass through. Today I am very grateful for that experience . Then, I wished the cup could pass by but today I am glad and extremely happy very to God for everything.
“That was not the first time Pastor has given me Prophesies and I have always disagreed with him because I don’t believe in prophecies . In 2011, he told me I should not contest for Senate election because my mandate would be stolen and won’t be recovered. I disobeyed him and it went as he said . In 2014, he also told me Muhammadu Buhari would win the 2015 election and it happened. There are several cases he gave me prophesies and even though I disagreed with him , it all came to pass . So I am here to thank God and to thank Pastor for being the instrument God uses to speak to me .
“If you can remember I wore black for the Court’s judgment that fateful day and I was not worried because I was prepared both in body and in spirit . God’swill will always prevail and I give all the Glory to Him ” He also said.
Recall that Senator Kalu who was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment in December 2019 on corruption charges was released from Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja in June 2020 after the Federal High Court in Lagos presided by Justice Muhammed Liman ordered his release, in line with the Supreme Court judgment nullifying his trial and conviction.
The Supreme Court had, in May, ruled that the trial and judgment delivered by Justice Mohammed Idris against Kalu and two others were null and void since the trial judge had no juridiction, having been elevated to the Court of Appeal.
