Extra: Muslims blast Wike for saying Rivers is a Christian state.


The statement by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike that Rivers is a Christian state has not gone down well with the Muslim community.

The governor had stated that his administration will continue to partner with the church for the development of the State while speaking on Sunday during the Lord’s Chosen Crusade with the theme: “God has the power to do this or that” at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Portharcourt.

He said the forces of darkness invaded the state and attempted to rob themandate of the people, but God stood firm.

“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.

But twitter is having none of it.
