The governor made this statement Sunday at a Service of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Mission Church, in Port Harcourt.
Mr. Wike 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.”
Governor 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 this would be part of his 100 days in office programme.
The Rivers State Governor said that his administration was 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.
