While giving his testimony, the former governor of Rivers state narrated how he struggled while growing up from the little money his father made and prayed for a Nigeria, where people would have to struggle less to survive.
He also pledged to assist the poor in the church by donating ten bags of rice every month for the next three years, among other donations.
