Ogun State governor- elect,  Prince Adedapo Abiodun, has attributed his victory  during the last governorship election to the handiwork of God.
He also  declared: “if some men were God, I would not have become the governor – elect”
Despite what he described as daunting challenges and vicissitudes of life, Abiodun said  his absolute and unshakeable faith in God, had been his invigorating tonic, which always kept him going.
His faith, he told the gathering was anchored on the message of Christ in the Bible,  Mark 11:23, which  he said always assured him that ” an unwavering faith could relocate a mountain from one point to another”.
He spoke during a thanksgiving church service which held at St. James Anglican Church, Iperu, his home town.
The All Progressives Congress (APC), governor-elect, also disclosed  that when he lost  the Ogun East senatorial seat in 2015, he was pained and heart-broken.
 “My victory has a hand of God. My friends and people around me were asking, “Dapo, what has kept you going ahead in your ambition? What has propelled you? But I remained focus in God and unshakeable. For you to succeed, you don’t have to have doubts in your mind.
“In my spirit, I have a mission for my country. I didn’t give up. For you to succeed, you should learn to get up and go. Also, you should have convictions.
“I always refer to the book of Mark 11:23. Honestly if men were God I wouldn’t have been here. In the 90s when I came back from the university, I offered to serve the people of Ogun state but I came second in that contest.
“Immediately after the primaries I joined Otunba Gbenga Daniel and campaigned for him, eventually he became governor.“Again, In 2011 I joined hands with the incumbent governor(Ibikunle Amosun) to win the election.  In 2015 I offered to become the senator but I wasn’t successful in that race but I was pained and heartbroken but I didn’t give up because something continued to tell me that I have a vision which is yet to be unaccomplished.
“Today, what I want you to take home from here is that we should never give up because many times when we meet disappointment, it is just an avenue to close a window for a double door to be opened.
“I want to assure you that we would lead an equitable and a transparent government which will create a public , private partnership for all, so help me God.
“I want to thank you all for been here today. We would have postponed this thanks given service until after inauguration but we want to quickly acknowledge the fact that this is an act of God.
“Few days ago,  I was with one of the paramount rulers in the state to thank him for his support and that which was rendered by his people and he said to me that, even the leafs are singing and dancing over your victory. I pray may all of us enjoy this kind of victory in our individual homes in Jesus name.”Abiodun stated.
While pledging  to run an equitable, just, accountable  and a transparent government, the in-coming governor also promised to create a public, private partnership for the benefits of the  state, the citizens and residents.
