Speaking during the 2020 Diocesan City Wide Mega Crusade of the Diocese of the Niger Delta North, in Port Harcourt on Saturday, Governor Wike said the relative peace in Rivers State was because God had honoured the prayers of the servants of God.
He said: “All through last year, despite the security challenges in the country, Rivers State remained relatively peaceful. The security of Rivers State is not because of the security agencies, but due to God’s enablement.
“The peace that comes from God is necessary for all business activities to thrive and people to engage in education.”
Governor Wike said that his administration will continue to partner with the Church to further the development of the State.
He noted that Rivers State remains a Christian State and will continue to do exploits for the good of the people.
“You have heard this several times before and I will repeat it here before thousands of Christian Faithful who are Anglicans. Rivers State is a Christian State.
“No matter the Intimidation and conspiracy, we will continue to declare that Rivers State is a Christian State. We are reaping the blessing of God”, he said.
Governor Wike urged Christian Faithful not to relent in their prayers for the peace, security and development of the State.
The Rivers State Governor commended the management of Elechi Amadi Polytechnic for providing the venue for the all-important City Wide Crusade.
He lauded the Anglican Diocese of Niger Delta North for the City Wide Crusade which has blessed the souls of thousands of Rivers people.
