Governor Nyesom Wike has stated that Rivers State is a Christian State and that he owes no one any apology for making such statement.
Wike made this known while speaking at a crusade of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Church at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt on Sunday June 23.
Speaking at the event, Wike stated that forces of darkness attempted to steal the people’s mandate but God prevailed.
“We saw forces, but the greater force, God Almighty came. With this crusade. Rivers State will be abundantly blessed. I repeat once again without apologies, Rivers State is a Christian State. That is why nobody can touch us. When it mattered most, the Christian community prayed and God heard your prayers. I will continue to support the activities of all Churches. This Government will always partner with the churches , whatever the programme they are engaged in. I urge the Church to continue to pray. Each time you pray, put us in your prayers”, he said.
“On March 9th light prevailed over darkness. God showed himself and he is in charge. But for God, I wouldn’t have been here addressing the Christian faithful. The enemies came to Rivers State to take over the state and stop the will of the people. But God said no and the will of the people prevailed “, he said.
