Governor Nyesom Wike re-affirmed his declaration of Rivers state as a Christian state while speaking at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Holy Ghost Rally which was held at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium on Sunday November 17.
The Rivers State Governor who insisted that he owes no one an apology over his comment, said he got re-elected due to God’s intervention.
Wike stated that he will always hold on to his comment of the state he governs being a Christian state because he is standing on a solid authority.
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.
“Anytime I have the opportunity, I repeat the declaration with authority and I owe nobody an apology. I am standing on solid authority. Rivers is a Christian state.”
Recall that Governor Wike was tackled by Muslims and some Muslim groups after he declared the South-South state a Christian State months ago. They claimed it was unlawful for a governor to ascribe a particular religion to his state.
