“I urge people of Anambra and APGA members particularly to embark on a 3-day fasting and prayer for peace, growth and development in the House and in the party as 2023 draw near.
“The times in which we have found ourselves are perilous and call for constant prayer, self-examination and penance.
“The leadership of the Anambra State House of Assembly should join in the prayer and fasting, I see God doing something new in the House soon,” he said.
Oye commiserated with Gov. Chukwuma Soludo, Rt. Hon. Uche Okafor, the Speaker of the House,and all the members of the House on the sudden death of the Majority Leader.
He prayed God to console Okafor’s immediate family, people of Awka South 1 Constituency and grant the soul of the deceased eternal repose in heaven.
