The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, promised to rehabilitate the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Mission Church in Port Harcourt for praying for his success at the polls.
Speaking Sunday at a Service in Port Harcourt, Mr. Wike attributed his victory in the last general election to prayer, saying God has vindicated him before his political enemies.
Mr. Wike also recalled the prayer he said to God when his political opponents called him a member of a secret society.
His words: “If you recall, I did say that if I belong to a secret society, I should not win the governorship elections of Rivers State. By the special grace of God, the pastor prayed for me before the congregation, he prayed for me in private, and he has been praying with me up till now. To the Glory of God, the elections came and God Almighty triumphed.”
Mr. Wike, who further recalled how the church supported him during his turbulent periods, said he would redeem his campaign promise to carry out renovations in and around the church headquarters premises in Port Harcourt.
He said: “If you recollect, I said that if I win, I would tar the road leading to the church compound and interlock its premises”.
The governor maintained that the renovation of the church would be part of his 100 days in office programme.
The governor said that his administration is the first in history of Rivers State to achieve many road construction progresses despite the heavy rains. He attributed these achievements to the power and grace of God.
