Governor Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, said the reason he is still a governor of his state is because of the intervention of God who dislodged forces of darkness who were prepared to rob the Rivers mandate on March 9, 2019.
His re-election was hotly contested with the All Progressives Congress, APC, supported African Action Congress’ candidate, Awara Biokpomabo nearly dethroning the governor.
Wike who spoke during the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Holy Ghost Rally at the Adokiye Amiesimaka described himself as a living testimony of God’s blessing.
He said: “Nigerians are aware of what happened on 9th March 2019. If anyone says he does not believe in God, that event of March 9 should make you believe God.
“But for God, the enemies would have taken over the state. I thank the Church for standing firm. They prayed for God’s will to be done and God’s will was done. But for your prayers, I won’t be here as Rivers State Governor. ”
Governor Wike said the criticisms on his declaration of Rivers State as a Christian State cannot stop him from affirming the reality.
He said: “Anytime I have the opportunity, I repeat the declaration with authority and I owe nobody an apology. I am standing on solid Authority. Rivers State is a Christian State.”
He commended the Redeemed Christian Church of God for their sanitation programme, tagged “Pick A Thrash “.
“If we have all churches embark on sanitation, our state will be cleaner. We will support this programme financially and we shall donate three vehicles to the Church for the programme”; he said.
Governor Wike said that God has used the General Overseer of RCCG to bless Rivers State. He said that the Annual Holy Ghost Rally has been a blessing to the State.
General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God ( RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye said everyone needs help. He noted that the best source to get help is from God.
He said: “No matter how influential and powerful, everyone needs help. Everyone needs help and the best help you can get is from the Almighty God. ”
He said that Divine Help is always on time and manifests at the time it is needed.
Pastor Adeboye prayed for Governor Wike, Rivers State and her people.
The Pastor in charge of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Belemina Obunge announced that the Second Phase of the Church’s Environmental Sanitation Programme has commenced.
He expressed gratitude to Governor Wike and the Government of Rivers State for the support over the years.
