Living Christ Mission, under the able leadership of His Grace the Most Rev. Professor Daddy Hezekiah MFR, the Anointed Prophet of the Most High God, International Mayor of Peace, Proprietor and Chancellor Hezekiah University, Umudi, Imo State, Nigeria, on Sunday, October 25, 2020, organized a prayer march for His Excellency, President Donald J. Trump and the United States of America, in respect of the crucial November 3, 2020 US presidential election, at the Administrative Headquarters of the church in Onitsha, Anambra State, Nigeria. Mighty Prophet Daddy Hezekiah is a renowned Prophet of the Most High God, and a globally acknowledged philanthropist whose contribution to the growth, preservation and spread of Christianity across the globe remain indelible. As a crusader for justice and the sanctity of humanity, the man of God remains actively involved in the fight against persecution, injustice, poverty, corruption and oppression, both on a local and global scale. The International Mayor of Peace is also a firm believer in peace. In 2001, during the aftermath of the deadly terrorist attack on America, He donated the sum of thirty thousand US dollars ($30,000USD) to the American government to help fight terrorism and rehabilitate victims.

The nation of Israel also received the sum of twenty thousand US Dollars ($20,000USD), in the same year, to cater for her displaced refugees. On the local scene, under a robust scholarship scheme spanning decades, the Mighty Prophet has trained, sponsored and holistically empowered thousands of Nigerian youths to attain various levels of educational and vocational pursuit. The vast reach of his philanthropy cuts across many individuals and groups, religions and tribes, including private and public institutions. A recent event being the distribution of palliatives consisting of cash, clothing and food items worth over thirty million naira (N30m), to over twenty thousand Nigerians — cutting across diverse ethnic and religious inclinations — in May, during the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown. On the reason for organising a prayer march for the President of the United States — Donald Trump, Mighty Prophet Hezekiah stated that he was moved to do so for several reasons. Chief among them is his sole altruistic affinity to the great, yet widely persecuted, president and the exigency of time in the build up to the elections.

Other reasons He gave are;
Trumps vivid support for Christians all over the world, especially those persecuted. His lucid efforts at preserving the sanctity of morals, law and order, right to life and the pursuit of freedom and happiness in the United States of America and all over the world. His unflinching support for the nation of Israel — who are the custodians and proof of the existence of Jesus Christ, the reality of the Bible, and the authenticity of Christianity. His bold stand up to world trade imbalance, exploitation, oppression and knavishness of world powers such as Russia, China, Turkey, etc.

Trump’s commendable commitment to world peace, especially in Asia, Europe and the Middle East; as seen in Israel-Bahrain-UAE-Sudan peace agreement, Serbia-Kosovo economic normalization, North Korea nuclear weapon de-escalation and a complete paralysis of the economy of Iran — the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. The Anointed Prophet of God, Daddy Hezekiah, believes that Trump's win would surely have far reaching positive global effect in the world, including the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as it would ensure a reduction in the persecution of Christians in Nigeria. [Recall that Donald Trump is the only world leader who vociferously demanded an end to the killing of Christians in Southern Kaduna]. A Trump win would also help keep corrupt and unjust Nigerian leaders on their toes. [As evidenced in the visa ban which helped instil decorum, fairness and order in the just concluded Edo gubernatorial election.] If re-elected, Nigeria can also benefit from both arms, ammunition and intelligence support from the US president Donald Trump, who has promised to help tackle Nigeria's malignant Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen insurgency.

A man with such robust achievements, undoubtedly, suffice suitable to further lead the greatest nation on earth, and the world at large, to further greatness. While entertaining questions from a group of journalists representing about twenty-five media houses across the globe, Daddy Hezekiah expressed a full commitment and concern to the current issues of police brutality in Nigeria. As a former police officer, he opined that the ongoing End SARS protest in Nigeria was one in which the initiators were organised and had good intentions. He agreed that the protest was hijacked by hoodlums, who embarked on the destruction of lives and property, and called for the prosecution of those hoodlums by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

He still advocates for a holistic reformation of the Nigerian Police Force. The man of God clearly wishes to inform the general public that the timing of the Prayer March in the face of the End SARS protest is in no way an indication of insensitivity to the plight of Nigerian youths, as misconstrued. If for anything, the earlier portions of this document have highlighted some areas in which a Trump re-election would be beneficial to the struggle against corruption, injustice, oppression and intimidation, by many among the ruling class in Nigeria. More so, the man of God has been at the vanguard of the clamour for accountability and good governance long before the End SARS struggle. In addition, it must be sternly noted that there is no political undertone, financial incentive or other reasons outside those stated in this press release, either locally or internationally, attached to the Prayer March. The great Prayer March, which attracted thousands of Nigerians, was scheduled weeks before the End SARS protest in Nigeria and in no way seeks to undermine the struggle for a better nation. Rather, it can be seen as an expository and support for effective and exemplary leadership — something Nigeria can strive to attain. This great Prophet of our generation, is a global citizen, a detribalised Nigerian, who strongly believes in the rule of law, religious freedom, equity and fairness, justice and the continued peace and indivisible unity of Nigeria.
