The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has urged Nigerians to ensure they get their permanent voter’s card and to take the upcoming 2023 General Elections seriously.
This is as he expressed the belief that God would use the 2023 election to grant all our pleas as Nigerians, for a rebirth of a new nation.
Wike made this know while speaking at the Inter-Denominational Church Service in commemoration of the 62nd Independence Day Anniversary of Nigeria, at St. Paul’s Cathedral Church, Diobu in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
“Nigeria must rise again, it must fulfil its divine purpose for which God has put it together, Nigeria has a prophetic agenda, whether the devil likes it or not. We must have the confidence that our votes will count and that we will use our votes to bring in the leaders after the heart of God,” the Governor quipped.
Governor Wike said under his watch, the State Government has been resolute and consistent in providing the dividends of democracy to the people living and doing business in the State.
“We have seen it, in the massive improvement in security, we have seen it in social and physical infrastructure, what will you say, when public tertiary institutions have been on strike for the past seven months, and some of the students are being killed, some are roaming about, some are going into crime, while others are abusing drugs and going mental, but in Rivers State, all the State institutions are functioning, none stop and salaries are paid as at when due and lecturers are teaching the way they should,” Wike further stressed.
Wike expressed gratitude to the Almighty God for the 62nd independence anniversary of the Country and for keeping the nation as one in spite of all the security and economic challenges, adding that God in His infinite mercy has kept us together as a people, what seems impossible with men, is possible with God.
