The governor made this disclosure during an interactive session held with Pastor Adeboye at the banquet hall of the Benue State Government House, Makurdi, on Saturday.
Ortom said that the revelation took place when he went for a retreat with his wife, Eunice, in 2012.
The governor said that with the fulfilment of the promise of God in his life, he would continue to be close to Adeboye.
He explained that Pastor Adeboye’s one-day visit to the state gave him the opportunity to appreciate God for bringing the two of them together again.
The cleric also cited the case of Abraham and his wife who had an encounter with God, saying, “God changed their barrenness to fruitfulness.”
Meanwhile, a frontline social media activist, Peterhot Apeh has advised the current governor of Benue State to sit up and stop flaunting his ‘god’ or risk losing his seat in 2019.
