A top contender for the Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo Federal Constituency seat in Benue State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Phillip Agbese, has narrated how he miraculously survived a ghastly motor accident.
The human rights activist was involved in an auto crash on his way to Otukpo after concluding his local government declaration tour in Ogbadibo, on April 10th.
Speaking for the first time after a month, Agbese said God preserved his life so that he could serve Him more devotedly and touch more lives through philanthropy.
According to him, the accident was the handiwork of his political detractors who wanted him out of the way at all cost.
Speaking to newsmen on Saturday in Abuja, the UK-trained lawyer revealed that founder of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Pastor Paul Enenche appeared to him and rescued him from the incident.
He added that the renowned preacher handed him a Bible and a bag containing numerous gift items.
He further revealed that Enenche directed him to use the holy book to spread the good news of Jesus and use the goody bag to reach out to more less privileged people in the nation.
“My life is a testimony. I’m alive by the divine intervention of the Lord,” Agbese said. “It was all planned out by my political opponents to eliminate me. I’m speaking to you by the mercies of God”, he added.
Quoting from the book of Isaiah 59:19, he said “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against them. This is exactly my story.
“I am God’s Minister. God revealed to me that those behind the accident will live to regret it and that I should forgive them. But I love them all and I have forgiven them.
“Nonetheless, I want to appeal to them to change their evil ways and come to Jesus. He is the way, the truth and life.
“Like the disciples, I received the great commission to spread the gospel and touch more lives. These I will do as I continue my quest to bring quality representation to my people”.
Despite this setback, Agbese, however, said he is assured of victory at the APC’s primary, noting that he could not serve God and end up in disappointment.
The Okanga of Agila, as he is fondly called, through his campaign team, recently submitted his expression of interest and nomination forms at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Agbese has pledged to equip the youths through education and ICT, while empowering the women in agribusiness
