Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has attributed his political survival during the last governorship election to the support and prayers of Christians and God Almighty.
He said enemies and forces of darkness invaded the state during the governorship election and attempted to rob the people of their mandate, but God intervened and gave him victory.
Wike stated this 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 Port Harcourt, the state capital.
The Governor maintained that the prayer of Christians also played a major role during the election, stressing that his administration will continue to partner with the church for the development of the state.
He said: “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.
“On March 9 2019 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.”
