Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday, was described as a man who takes good tidings with him wherever he finds himself.
Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State made this remark when the former number one citizen paid him a courtesy visit.
Obasanjo also described Emmanuel as a good product who deserved to be given another term in office.
He remarked that God likes continuity, especially when things are good.
He also expressed optimism that the Governor has the capacity to take the state to its promised land.
“You have to be a strong Christian to be able to say, God will find for me a successor that will do to me what I have done to my predecessor.
“Governor Udom believes in his character, he believes in his value, he believes in his service to humanity and to God.
“I always cherish the attributes of God. The wonderful God that we worship kept some attributes to Himself He doesn’t share with anybody: Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience.
“He has other attributes that he shares with us – kindness, generosity, compassion, truth, forgiveness, love and continuity.
“God is a God of continuity since he created the world. I always say to myself and my family: if something is good, keep it.
“We have a good product in our hand and if I have a good product in my hand, I will not change it, I will keep it.
“This is a good product, let’s have him for continuity. I can assure you, this governor has no fear; he will stand still. Please stand with him and he will take us to the promise land,” Obasanjo said.
Noting that the former president was on a solidarity visit and decided to worship in his church, Emmanuel said “Whenever you see him move, know you that something is about to happen. As you see him move today, something good is about to happen in Akwa Ibom.
“He has spoken concerning Nigeria and I’m sure something good is about to happen in Nigeria.
“Baba just came on a father-son solidarity visit and he chose to worship in my own local church.
“I want to thank him for this show of love, this show of solidarity and I also thank God for everything.”
