The erstwhile Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has on Monday in Abuja said that the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in this year’s general elections was engineered by God.
This disclosure was made known at a reception organised for him by his Committee of Friends at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
According to Mr. Amaechi, God engineered the victory by giving the APC a good and credible presidential candidate, which enabled the party to win the last election.
“Amaechi did not contribute more than you did. We all worked together; in fact, it will be unfair for us to claim the glory.
“This is because I believe that the victory of APC was engineered by God.
“And I saw it coming and told my friends that we would win. People thought I was a political mathematician.
“The more I prayed, the more God gave me the confidence that we would win.
“One of my prayer points was `God, do not tell me You will protect me after we lose; protect me now by making sure that we win’; and we won,” he said.
He thanked all members of the party for working hard during the campaign, saying the victory was for all party members.
