Ibikunle Amosun, governor of Ogun state, says of the 36 states in the country, Ogun is the place where prayers are quickly answered.
Speaking on Wednesday at investors forum in Abeokuta, Amosun said the development was responsible for the abundance of religious bodies in the state.
“When people call me to say Ogun state is outperforming national indices, they don’t know the reason,” he said.
“The reason is that this is the religious capital of Africa, not anywhere so prayers are answered faster in Ogun than any other state.
“We are happy that many religious bodies are using our state. They have adopted Ogun because they know God answers prayers better than any other state.”
